Day 24 of the Inktober Challenge. Prompt word 24 is “fairy”.
A wish from the Emu Fairy. You may have not known that emu fairies existed but here is proof that they do. 🙂
The “May All Your Dreams Come True” painting was first drawn with an Artline pen and then watercolour paint was added. I painted it on 310gsm watercolour paper, approximately 21 x 26 cm, and it has my full name and signature on the back.
The Australian white ibis, due to its increasing presence in urban settings and its past-time of rummaging in rubbish bins with its long, curved beak, has acquired the “bin chicken” or “tip turkey” nicknames. It is becoming an icon of Australia’s popular culture despite that some of the population view them as a pest and aren’t too enamoured with their new-found hobby.
The Australian white ibis is a native Australian bird.
I love painting emus and seeing the smiles spread over people’s faces when they see the emus’ antics. This stylishly dressed emu is off on a trip with her turquoise suitcase with a large Bon Voyage sticker plastered on it. This will make it easy to spot on the baggage carousel!
I liked this one so much that I’ve had it professionally photographed for prints. Prints are printed on 310gsm print version of William Turner watercolour paper with archival inks. The texture of the paper and quality of inks used often generates the ‘is this an original?’ question. I think that this picture would make a great gift for those who love travelling and anybody associated with the travel industry.

I hope that you are travelling well, regardless if you’re travelling or not. 🙂
Day 4 of the Inktober Challenge and the prompt word for today is “scallop”. My funky emu is wearing her beach jewellery for her day at the seaside. Drawn with an Artline pen first with watercolour added afterwards.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you are enjoying a sunshiny day.
