Animal Wednesday - postcards

I had some blank watercolor postcards and have been painting them up for the YArT sale. The first is my favorite image - that of the "underground snake/dragon - danger ahead - watch out" image!


The second - a fish - whose image I saw somewhere on a card and copied as I liked his teeth


Now this one I blatantly copied from an image that I have from another artist - whose name I don't know as the card isn't signed. I don't do it justice - her's is gorgeous. I have found that the way for me to learn to draw is to start by copying drawings or other images - get comfortable with that and then move onto drawing from photographs - and hopefully onto life drawing. But to keep it honest, I'm donating proceeds from these two to the "save the fishies and turtles" fund in the gulf.

Happy Animal Wednesday all - put your links below as usual - love that mr. linky

Mim, I think the Ripple Project is closed now. I read a post from Kelly Light saying she wasn't accepting any more artwork and that she would soon write a wrap-up post :(

These are great. I like to see your imagination on a card, like the underworld dragon. I love your fishes too.
