Dec 1st- WDE- Animals

Thanks to all the artists that joined in this week. I love how diverse we are and so much talent!

These are both 5 X 7 Christmas cards. Acrylic and watercolors.






Happy holidays!

Li

Three times lucky Li and they are worth a triple look . Love the puppy in particular and your distinctive style just shines through in that one. The cardinal is beautiful too.

I love both of these. If I have to pick a favorite, it's the cardinal but only by a little!

Both of these are great, Li! The puppy is sweet and the bird... that bird is phenomenal. Glorious cardinal. So rich and colorful, the texture of feathers and rounded volume of body are wonderful. Nice atmospheric background, the entire painting is a beautiful whole.
