This is a pastel painting of my Miniature Horse "Star Dreamer".
Star Dreamer passed away last year at 24 years of age.  I bought him as a 7 month old foal, and had him all his life.  We did the Show Circuit when he was a young horse and he won many awards. He was a special little horse and a real character, and I miss him very much.

I've really got behind with my Blog Paintings, however here's some from this year 2019

These were all rendered with Watermedia,  -  most of them with Watercolor and Watercolor Pencils

A baby Elephant in pen & ink

This dear little baby elephant with all his baby wrinkles just needed to be drawn in pen and ink. They are so sweet and vulnerable these tiny babies elephants!

I washed him in watercolor then added  water-soluble pen work to his wrinkles.  I then  washed over the pen again, to  make the blue color you see here.  I was quite pleased with the way he turned out.
This was painted for the Wet Canvas Animal & Wildlife, September Challenge

Flowers & a Camel

A Camel painted in PanPastels and some pen & Ink added.
I thought I'd like to try the combination of mediums, and it worked quite well.
The Camel was painted for Wet Canvas, Animal & Wildlife May Challenge

Calla Lilies in watercolor and Inktense pencils.  I loved the bright pink color of these lilies.
