It's an ATC size that I will be sending out to someone in the WDE exchange I'm doing.
I like the way it came out and I enjoyed doing it, I'm having some fun with the acrylics lately!.

These are both painted using acrylic paints on board.
The rose was very difficult, I had trouble with the background.
The alpacca was a bit easier 'cause he's so cute!!

First is from a picture taken on the Great Ocean Road.
Not taken by me but a close friend.
It is painted in Oil on board and is 26" x 20"
Second is just a tree!
I think it is a ghost gum and was painted using another photo taken by the same friend.
I'm not sure it's entirely completed yet. I may return to it.
It's Oil on board and is 24" x 17".

It took about two minutes to sketch the drawing and the abour 3 hours to lay the colour.
Love how it came out, except for the face being a little cartony.

I drew these frogs from a photo taken at Sydney Wildlife world
and the flower was drawn from a photo taken at Sydney Japanese Gardens.
These were alot of fun to do, they were done using water soluble crayons and colour pencils in my 6 x 8 sketch book.

I draw this using prismacolor pencils in my 6 x 8 inch, Sketchbook.
For some reason I just cannot draw with prismacolours with out burnishing.
I just don'i want to see the papper underneath.
I really like the result though.
I enjoyed mixing up the greens in this one!

I used the digital chalk and digital spraypaint for the background.
Love the way this came out.
The background was done using spraypaint and the blender.

I can use them in the lounge where the light is dim and I cant see the colours correctly and it doesn't seem to make alot of difference.
If the colours aren't correct its no big deal as its not usually out by much.
For some reason I can not use coloured pencil lightly. I have to cover the paper completely but, I do love the way the colours blend when I burnish. ( press hard and go over another colour. )
The First one is a meadowlark on a fence stump. Second I have a horse with its eye slightly out of place but I like the colours..

Some Acrylic and some collage.
1: "Orca" - This is an Oil painted ATC.
2: "Dolphin" - This one is acrylic. I like that it is a monochrome. I have painted this before in digital. Its one of my favourite images.
