Arrow MAY "Feathers, Fur, Fins & Scales Challenge"

Hullo Animal & Wildlife Members - I haven't been able to contact the Member who was scheduled to Host this May Challenge, so I'm Hosting instead.
2 of the photos are my beloved animals and the rest are from the RIL - many thanks to the members who have loaded their images into the RIL.

Please do not post your entries until 20th of May 2019
. It's much more fun if we all post about the same date - gives us all something to look forward too and much more exciting.

You can use any of the images, can crop them or put 2 together, or paint/draw them anyway you would like too, using any painting/drawing medium. You can also chat about the Challenge with other members and ask any questions about them - but please do not post your entries until "Reveal Day" which is Monday 20th May 2019
So here we go;

This is my Jack Russell/Fox Terrier - "Pippa" who has just turned 4 years old and many of you will have heard me talking about Pippa. A little mischief but has quietened down considerable now she's older! That's her pink toy dolly beside her - the only toy that's lasted more than a few days without being totally destroyed!



This is my beloved Miniature Horse "Star Dreamer" who passed away at 24 years of age, last year. He was my precious, special boy and I'll miss him always. "I know you are having a great time with your horsey friends up there at the Rainbows End, Star Dreamer."



The next photos are by Lisilk and are from the RIL


Donkey


Otter


Baby goat


Red Panda by mbeckett


Koi Fish by Rosa Weitzel


Frog by C.P.


Jelly fish by WithrLady


For all the Cat People - a Burman by Masperius


And for all our Aussie friends a Cookaburra by Pazza


I hope you enjoy the selection and find something you would like to make art with! Looking forward to seeing your results on the 20th May.

There are some good photos so it will be difficult to chose which one to do.

Nice selection, Viv! I see a character or two that I'd like to do. Nice to have a little more time during our summer, when all the tourists have gone back north.

Excellent selection Viv... Hope I can join this month since I've been in a commission work and has taken me forever to finish. Not finished yet, but soon...

Re: MAY "Feathers, Fur, Fins & Scales Challenge"

Viv, thank you for your kind offer. That is nice to know and I may take you up on that if feasible. But I am still working on my eggs from Watermedia April and I have so much going on at home.
