Recently, I have had the urge to dip my brush into some wildlife illustration. Generally, I love drawing animals straight from nature. When there is a zoo easily accessible, one can find me sketching the animals. (Check out these sketches in this blog.) So after looking at the internet, I made a few mental images and sketched them out and played with the colors on me olde laptop.
I wanted the piece to be more colorful and painterly, focusing on the gestures and facial expressions rather than on the details. I do love the color palette and the grass I created was super fun and simple through painter. That was less than 10 minutes of work. The grass was completely an after thought that worked out.
Here's to a fun week of painting.
