Inktober Challenge – catch up

Wow! The last Inktober drawing I posted was Day 18.  I didn’t realise I was that far behind.

So, here’s a bit of a catch up.

For low-motivation Day 19, I drew a quick sketch of an Echidna, sometimes known as a spiny anteater.  They are a monotreme, egg-laying mammals, along with the platypus, and are native to Australia and Tasmania.  I live in Tasmania and I’ve seen them several times, often when they are crossing a road.  I love the way they walk, they dawdle and their whole body moves from side-to-side.  They are cute beyond words. I panic when they are on the road and want to jump out of the car and hurry them along before a car runs over them.

These are two photos I took of an echidna on the side of a road.

For low-motivation Day 20: a rabbit

For feeling more motivated Day 21: a kangaroo with joey

… and for Day 22, still feeling quite motivated, I drew a sculpture that is in front of the Government House Tasmania. Which do you like best? A photo of sculptures and buildings or a drawing or painting of sculptures and buildings?

A sculpture in front of Government House.  I ran out of room on the paper but I think that may be adding to the picture, rather than detracting from it 

and here’s the photo of the sculpture

Thanks for stopping by and wishing you a lovely rest of the day/evening.
