Colorful Meerkat Mafia

Well, I wanted to play with drawing and painting some animals, so looked for cute pics on the computer and found these Meerkat cuties.  I wanted to try to paint them with their regular animal colors, something I am not good at usually.

Tried once....threw it out.

Tried again....threw it out.

Finally threw in the towel and went for varied color.

Now to me they look like the meerkat mafia, and how in heavens name do you paint snouts pointing straight at you?

A bit odd but it was fun.

The WLG's are coming out again, as I want to have most of those drawings ready for a winter submission to...well...somewhere.    So the start of a new drawing is below.

Fun stuff..

Love love love the meerkats- although not a fan of these animals- the colours are just splendiferpous! And they made me giggle!

The colors really make them individual and oh so cute.
Yes, perspective is not easy. When you do it the way it looks, it looks wrong. Go figure.

The meerkat mafia....ha Love them. Any head on portrait is difficult to me.

I'm painting a pink elephant, so I completely relate to multi-colored meekats of the mafia variety. :) Love them! xo

meerkats and you were made for each other - you capture their sweet and playful essence perfectly!
