I find koalas and echidnas difficult to paint. It’s a hit and miss situation. More often than not, I’m not totally happy with what I’ve painted… but are artists ever 100% happy with what they’ve painted???
I’ve often told myself, that’s it, give up on these marsupials and monotremes but there is something about the challenge and their cuteness that draws me back again and again to try this troublesome pair. I once read, but unfortunately didn’t take note of who was imparting this wise piece of advice, ‘don’t strive for mastery. Strive for prolific and the mastery will come’. In other words, practice.
Here’s this week’s attempts.
Some previous attempts.
For now, I think I will go back to painting birds, but I’m sure something will draw me back to trying to paint this problematic pair again.
Thanks for reading and I hope the upcoming week is a good one for you. 🙂
