I didn’t get chance to do a watercolour painting yesterday, although I did try. I attempted some roses, so imagine if you will a painting of something that looks like misshapen tomato sculptures at best, or fat red cabbages at worst. Hence it wasn’t posted, and will never see the light of day ever again.

I have done a watercolour today, however.

It’s another in my series of versions of ATCs/ACEOs of baby animals resting.

We’ve arrived at the watering hole on our safari now, and there’s a baby elephant cooling himself at the water’s edge.

Each of these paintings measure 2.5 X 3.5 inches, and they really are fun to do!

This has been another post for #WorldWatercolorGroup, of which more details can be found by clicking the link below:

    1. Thanks, Raili. Yes, it’s building nicely now.
      Quite a bit smaller than postcards, though.

        1. It’s the latter two that seem to be an issue, Raili… but we’ll see… different avenues to follow, and all that!
