Smile September "Feathers, Fur & Scales" Challenge

Hullo everyone, I'm your Host for September 2017 "Feathers, Fur & Scales Challenge"

I'm posting 10 images - 4 from the RIL and 6 of my own.
You can use any painting/drawing medium you want to, and you can post as many entries as you wish.
Just remember "REVEAL DAY" is always the 20th of the month - in this case it is Wednesday 20th September 2017.
You can chat about the Challenge in this Thread or post part of your painting in our "What are you Working on Thread" (if you would like too) but please don't post your full entry in the Challenge until Wednesday 20th September rolls around where you are.

The first 4 images are from the RIL

Baby elephant from; oldrockchick


Macaw by; Pazza


Lobster by; Sundiver


Giraffe by: Vmrs


The next 6 images are from me

One of my grandaughter's cats - "Boots" a real cutie!


A Galah in our local Aviary in Queens Park


A Native Pig in Queens Park.
We actually have no native pigs in New Zealand - pigs were brought here by Captain cook centuries ago - so our native pigs are called "Captain Cookers"!


My daughter-in-law's beautiful German Shepherd "Indie"


Some of our cattle


And last, but certainly not least - my dog Pippa! Now you just knew I'd get Pippa in here didn't you! I actually could have posted lots more photos of Pippa, but I thought we don't want to go into Pippa overload, do we!


Have fun and I'm looking forward to seeing what you make of these pic!

The story is that Captain Cook is supposed to be one of my ancestors. So, if I have time this month, I guess the "Captain Cooker" will have to be my choice.

Re: September "Feathers, Fur & Scales" Challenge

Ep -Yes I think I can guess which pics you like the best!

Penny -thanks, glad you like the pics

Dottie - How exciting, having Captain Cook as an ancestor!
Yes, certainly paint the "Captain Cooker" pig. He's a lovely pig in Queens Park Reserve a very large park in our closest city. I take little Pippa walking in Queens Park usually 1 day a week and we've watched this big fat pig, grow up over the last 2 years, from a tiny little piglet to the big hefty pig he is now. A friend who comes walking with me, tells me this pig is a she and not a he. But I've never been able to see a Park Attendant to confirm that - so take your pick either a he or a she! Probably a she by the look of her, and she defintely needs to go on a diet!

Terrific choice of references Viv. There is something for everyone and I hope lots of our members will be taking part in this month's challenge. Thanks a lot for hosting.
You could have posted another ten photos of Pippa. I for one, can't get enough of her. She is soooooo prettty!!

Re: September "Feathers, Fur & Scales" Challenge

Chammi - thanks Pippa is pretty and soooo naughty! But I must admit now shes reached 2 years old, shes settled down a lot and is actually doing things I taught her when she was a puppy!
Sometimes - out of the blue - she will come when shes called, and sit and wait when shes told too when Im opening gates etc. Isnt that amazing that she actually remembers what she was taught when she was a puppy! Im always astounded when she does something like that - I always expect her to totally ignore me, so its always a lovely boost when she does do it right!
I must do something right with my dogs, as theyve always adored me...and strangely, Pippa seems to be doing that also!

Lovely photos Viv - thank you!
