Start of the Wombat

Wombat Study
6 5/8" x 4 5/8"
Derwent Onyx pencils on Derwent Soft Cover Journal.

Yes, this is the first preliminary drawing for my second go at Lauren's Wombat! I am going to do a good wildlife painting of a wombat whatever it takes. Might be pastels. Might be acrylics like the bobcat. Might be watercolor. Might be mixed media. But I will get this animal looking true and natural in its native environment of digging up people's lawns in Australia!

A bit of a challenge since it's not a cat. But this drawing bodes well! I also reviewed the Onyx pencils on Rob's Art Supply Reviews using this drawing as an example of what they can do. Wow. They can even scan well!

Next up, some composition planning and color studies. I will do this right. I've put plenty of work into learning in all the years poor Lauren has waited for her art package, now's the time to turn it all loose. I will do this right. I will not lose confidence because I botched it once - it will come out well. Practice makes perfect - I learned a bit on that last one anyway, this drawing is even better for all that it's small.

I'm so excited about this, seriously. I don't mind that I've had to wait. It's worth it.

PURRR thank you! I've got it in hand now. Never mind the last one came out a total failure, this wombat will be a beauty. Background will be much simpler, the animal's the main subject of the painting.

I'm having fun with him and my references are far better too now.

You're up ahead of all new commissions and there will be some more extra goodies in your package for all your waiting time.
