Cat People

I am a cat person. You wouldn’t guess it from all the dogs I’ve watercolored recently. So, this weekend I painted a pretty kitty named Ginger. She’s so fluffy!

Dog Week

Last week was Dog Week over in /r/sketchdaily.  I was able to contribute this English mastiff and corgi.  And who says Reddit hinders production?

Panda Bear Splatter

Here is a panda I painted for a Panda. 

Good Elephant

My most recent commission is a safari animal for a nursery. First, I painted a lion, but I think he came out too mean. My second attempt, I believe, is a success. Who wouldn’t want this friendly elephant protecting baby’s room?

What safari animal would you have painted?

Bad Lion

This watercolor lion was supposed to be a baby shower gift. The nursery is safari themed. However, I think he came out more mean than cuddly. Guess I’ll have to paint another safari animal tomorrow (one with less teeth).

Lies and Good Intentions

I got bored with the seven deadly sins thing. So yeah, that series is over now. Here are a couple hares and my condolences.

Cat on my Stuff

It has been a long time since I took the time to paint my loved kitty, Samara. Observing her sitting on an unsorted pile of  junk mail inspired me to paint these two watercolor sketches. After all, it was a really good excuse for putting off sorting those bills and advertisements just a bit longer.

Fox Out of Water

Here is a painting of a startled fox. The animal feels out of place, and was created with watercolors. The painting practically named itself.

An Afternoon at the Honolulu Zoo

Here are some sketches of animals I made at the Honolulu Zoo.

I was lucky enough to catch the elephants at their happiest, bath time.

The flamingoes in Hawaii are more orangey pink than the reddish pink I am used to seeing.

The turtles, lemurs, and gibbons shared a living space.

These hippoes were quite fond of one another.

The tigers were beyond gorgeous, but moved around the most, making drawing difficult.

Giraffes, zebra, and a rhino.

Before my trip to this zoo I did not know what a gharial was. Now I do and I sort of wish I didn’t. They are absolutely horrifying. Fun to draw, but horrifying.

I was so absorbed with the gharial section that I drew the trees around it.
