Illustration Friday – Soaked

Finally! I am going to do Illustration Friday! I am going to do it faithfully and seriously. Mostly seriously. The speed with which I colored in this doodle may not be considered serious…but I had fun. When I first read the prompt for this week, I wanted to draw that pitiful soaked scowl that a dog gives after a bath. The best I could dig up from that idea was this basset, who makes me laugh but wasn’t the furry soaked creature I was looking for.

The girl from last week’s ‘Safari’ (which I also need to post!) appeared on the page instead. Is this going to be a continuing theme?

Because there has to be a photo on the blog to get everything nice and tidy. This was my first try at the Daily Paintworks Challenge. I don’t know much about the site, but read about it on Kimberly Kelly Santini’s blog (one of my new favorites!). It was fun practice! I was worried about sticking like a sore thumb, since this is only my second real acrylic work – or cat for that matter! With that in consideration, I’m pretty happy with the results. The most fun bit was the sgraffito seat!
