Animal Wednesday - Pastel Pig

I'm working on a series of animals for my friends shop. I tried paint again with this pig and it was yuck! This time I didn't use tissue paper, but just pastels directly on the paint. Hmmm.... I could try colored pencils also, that might be interesting.




In the end I made his eye and the shadow a bit darker.

I also did a little chicken and did a print of the cow to sell instead of the original. We'll see how it goes....






I'll put the the expanding barnyard in the shop and see if they sell....then maybe I can move onto FISH!!

Happy Animal Wednesday!

I even like the pig in the first photo,,,he's great, as he looks like he's going to fly. You know what they say about that!
The cow looks just so sweet. Wonderful expression!
Eagerly awaiting the fish,,,you always do fun fish!
