Young Tree Kangaroo
In looking for reference material about wallabies, I came across the tree kangaroo. These little guys are marsupials who live in Australia and New Guinea and have pouches just like other marsupials. Who wouldn’t like such a face?
This morning, I brought one of my stuffed animal penguins to get an idea of how a penguin would look at the beach with the right lighting. Then it rained. Oh well. Such is the weather of Key Biscayne. This painting was done on a 16″ by 20″ gallery wrapped canvas.
Watch how this painting evolved on the Little Creations Evolving page.
Today, I walked over to the library and took photos of the friends who you see in this painting. The Key Biscayne Library is a lovely area that attracts lots of native species. This painting is made with watercolor and gouache on a gallery wrapped canvas.
Here is a celebration of Kiwi, the fruit, and the bird. Thank you, New Zealand, for bringing both to us. This was done with watercolor and gouache on a gallery wrapped canvas.
