Tree Frog- Pastel

Just having some fun with my pastels. This is a small, 5 x 7 inch, painting. I have some larger pieces that I am wanting to do, but I need to force myself to set aside the time to do the necessary preliminary sketches and research. Hopefully, soon, I'll get started on those things. In the meantime, these small pieces have kept things going.

Bird Brains- Oil

Finished this last night. 8 x 10 inches. Had some fun with my oil paints, still learning how to use them. All work was done wet on wet. This was for the monthly challenge in sw/western forum in Wet Canvas. The paint was still wet when I took the photo, so there is a slight glare.

Hereford Calf- Oil- sold

Was finally able to paint something new. The size is 5 x 7 inches, on a piece of masonite primed with gesso. Spent around 3 hours, completed in wet on wet, in one painting session. It was an enjoyable painting, and I tried to capture the fluffy, youthfullness of the young calf, snuggled alongside the mother. This painting was part of the May challenge in Wet Canvas (southwest/western forum).  (sold)
