Beautiful work on the pelican, Kay! I love the rich colors and the feel of the piece. Looking forward to the final!

And to think I nearly didn't post him because I was afraid he didn't fit the paramters for the forum! Glad I took a chance! They're all wonderful!

Here's the Inktense with water added. I like both versions. It is 11x8.5 if I didn't specify size

The InkTense adds a lot to this great piece, Kay! I love the moody look in his eye and the rich colors. Great work!

Re: March Challenge 2013 - Come one, come all!

Cyntada - Thank you for hosting! I found this thread this a.m.- thanks for the great reference pictures. I was excited to see the Black Mountain pic - have wanted to try my hand at a SW landscape. I am new to painting and to WetCanvas. SO, here is my work - just spent a couple of hours on it but plan to get back to it next week.
Love all of the pelicans!, the colorful roads, the other landscapes and the pencil pinecone - you guys are sooooo talented!!
happy Easter to all!

Re: March Challenge 2013 - Come one, come all!

Just barely made the deadline for this month! I had the bug to do a little sketching tonight, so I thought I'd give the handsome, spiky-haired pelican a go as well. It's always such fun to see everyone's different take on the same image; that's one of my favorite parts of these Monthly Challenges!

This is 6x8 inches in size. I drew it in my field sketch book using a ball point pen. I love that you can sketch with just about anything! It took almost an hour.

C&C are always welcome. Thanks for looking. Everyone's work this month has been so great!

Re: March Challenge 2013 - Come one, come all!

Love your Pelican Jen - and all of the others. I can see that the monthly challenge is a great way to practice. Choosing a subject is half the battle for me ...

Re: March Challenge 2013 - Come one, come all!

Thanks so much, Kat! Much appreciated! I agree...choosing a subject can be tricky and a good way to be tempted to procrastinate, at least for me. It's such fun to just have images handed to you, giving you a chance to stop pondering and just grab your art gear and begin!

The painting was done on Uart 320 paper 10.5” x 13.5” with an Alcohol wash under painting.

Rembrandt, Unison and Nupastels pastels were used.
