Day 6 of 30 in 30 Painting Challenge: Animals: Sip of Water

Original 8x10 Pastel Painting For Sale - "Sip of Water" : $50.00+ $6.95 Shipping and  Handling
Hello everyone! Just posting today's painting for the 30 in 30. This one was actually completed several weeks ago. I did about 10 paintings ahead of time before the challenge so that I would have something to post on days that I would be too busy to paint. Today is one of those type of days. I know, it's kinda cheating a 'lil but Leslie Saeta says that there are no rules: just have fun and post as often as you can.

Anyhoo, this is my painting. I loooooove how this one came out. I think that I was able to capture a lot of detail (which is not always so easy with pastel, since it is such a soft medium).

Well, that's all from SamDoum Art, take care, and God bless!

    1. Thanks Cindy! Yes, painting ahead has been very helpful! :) I've been enjoying your beautiful creatures as well. They really do look like something you'd see in an animated movie from Disney or Dreamworks! You are very talented! :)
