For Our Community Connections Calendar


The theme is families or happiness.  They told me a Donkey Mom and baby would be okay, so that's what I painted.  I find it really helps me to be able to see things on my computer screen.  If I don't like this, I can paint it over, it isn't due until the end of the month.

  1. Mom's head is spot on, Charlotte! It is glorious and I love that this is for the theme of families!

  3. Thanks for the comments. However as I looked at it I had to kick myself! The foal looks like a miniature for heavens sakes, I'll need to paint it over. And the background is much too dark. I love the web as a tool, it's much better than holding a painting up to a mirror or something like that, or stepping back, don't you agree?

  4. ...or when you redraw it, you could leave the foals neck the way it is and show the lower part of it's face. The composition is charming - snuggled up together.

  5. I thought the baby was a llama baby, but I know you'll get what you are looking for, Charlotte. Your work just keeps getting better and better and better and I always love what I see!

  6. Thanks you guys, I'm already at it.... did you know you can "erase" acrylics with rubbing alcohol? I'm giving that a try... I'll see how that works and then post it, but I'll probably end up having to re-paint it. I love to fiddle around with stuff....
