Second Wombat Study


Wombat Study II 3" x 5" Stabilo Point 88 pen and wash on 140lb watercolor paper.

The wash blurred him too much, he looked better without it. But I'm starting to have a feel for these animals, their anatomy and proportions. Next one will be in color.

I also had class today, second lesson in "Essentials of Painting Buildings" with Johannes Vloothuis. Great class, notes are posted at WetCanvas and on Facebook.

Tomorrow's the big day when the raffle drawing for Skip's portrait takes place! The painting raised $740 total for Big Cat Rescue, enough to feed Skip the Bobcat for 15 months!

Yeah, this one did look grumpy. I wound up finding this wonderful webcomic and read the entire epic over several days:

Digger - be warned, it's quite an epic! Over 700 pages.

Inspirational. I think this wombat looked better before the wash, but there's no taking back a wash. Good thing I'll be doing the final painting without one. I like how the claws came out though, and this photo reference showed more of the anatomy. Haven't decided which one I'll use for the final painting.
