A touch of whimsy

EDM 44 - Draw an animal. This is a toy like llama that I was given a long time ago.

Sometimes the things I draw and paint are things that I want to challenge myself in learning how to do. Other ideas come from prompts. This llama came from the Everyday Matters list to draw an animal such as a pet, a zoo animal, a stuffed animal… This llama is a toy-like souvenir type thing that I’ve had for many years. I’ve always liked how whimsical it is. As a drawing I wanted to do it because of the challenge of reproducing soft fluffy light colored wool. This was done with watercolor, ink, colored pencil and gouache in a 5″ x 7″ sketchbook.
