Ta da! All done! Today is the last day of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge hosted by Leslie Saeta and I am sure most of us are ready for a short break. One of the goals of challenges like this is to encourage artists to try new things and to instil the useful habit of working daily at our craft. As many of us know, life sometimes takes over and, if our art gets put on the shelf for a while, it is sometimes difficult to get back in the swing of things.
Today's card is just a fun little picture of an ostrich chick.
A number of years ago, I did a series of cards for a friend who was raising ostriches. They gave tours and had a little gift shop. I visited and took lots of photos for reference and then spent a few months drawing these interesting creatures. I pulled out my old reference drawings and picked this piece to end the challenge.
Stay tuned for tomorrow's blog which will have a collage of my art for the month.
