I'm Hiding

This is 4 x 6 and was done in ink and watercolor for the Weekend Drawing Event on WetCanvas. Someone hosts each weekend and supplies 16 reference photos to pick from. You can do any medium and as many of them as you want. This guy attracted my attention. My thanks to my friend EP (eyepaint) who hosted and supplied the photos.

FABULOUS, JOan -- I love all the textures and colors in this!! I love seeing all the new photos for these challenges!! I really love your painting of him (even more than the photo!!!)

Fantastic... Joan !!! You have captured his skin & color and the tropical surrounding feel so well. EP must be proud of this work from her photo.

Joan said...

Lin - Thanks. This was a lot of fun to paint!! Using the ink made it possible to really play with it.

Ai - Thank you. EP had some great photos to work from. I printed out the turtle with the koi, but never got around to doing it. I'm going down to Key West next month. I'll have to be on a lizard watch for photos.

This guy is so cute! He reminds me of Ryan's pet, Stuart. :-)
