Jumping Here, There and Everywhere

Face of Experience
Painting size 11" x 15"


My mind is in a spin with all the images and challenges jumping around ready to capture them on paper. After painting flowers, then a landscape I went on to participate in a facebook July challenge to paint this chimp set by artist Sharon Whitley. Her partner is a Gary Jones a fabulous wildlife photographer and she chose his reference photo for her challenge. Presently I have a landscape partially done so I wonder what will be next!

  7. Your animal watercolors are really splendid. The way you painted the background really makes his feature pop. I am looking forward to what you paint next, too. As always. Your excitement is palpable.
