Blue-Eyed Black Lemur


What’s this strange creature? You might be forgiven for thinking it’s a deformed black cat, but if you’re in Madagascar, it’s more likely to be a blue-eyed, black lemur.

Did you know that other than humans, the only primate that has blue eyes is the blue-eyed black lemur? Poorly named too, because they’re sexually dichromatic like the crowned lemur. The females have the blue eyes but are a beautiful reddish-brown.

Crowned Lemur


#DoodlewashSeptember2021 Prompt: Hat. Because ‘crowned’. Crown, hat, same thing, right?

Did you know that crowned lemurs are sexually dichromatic meaning males and females are totally different colors? The males are red-brown with black crowns while the females are silver-brown with orange crowns.

Tufted Capuchin


#DoodlewashSeptember2021 Prompt: Waterfall. Tufted capuchin are a common sight at Iguazu Falls, which straddles the border between Argentina & Brazil. Boy, I had to look hard to find a connection between this monkey and a waterfall, lol.

Did you know that capuchins are considered the smartest of the new world monkeys.

Squirrel Monkey


#DoodlewashSeptember2021 Prompt: Cookie. It isn’t just cookie monsters that like cookies!

Did you know that only New World (Americas) monkeys have prehensile tails? So this Old World squirrel monkey has a cookie but he can’t hold on to things with his tail.

Golden Lion Tamarin


#DoodlewashSeptember2021 Prompt: Corn. Um, these monkeys are kind of corn-colored. Right? If you don’t agree with that, surely you agree these guys are a-maize-ing!

Did you know that the golden lion tamarin almost always gives birth to twins?

I wanted the texture of gouache, but felt that Daniel Smith’s Aussie Red Gold watercolor was the perfect color for this piece. Good thing that gouache and watercolor can be used together!

Colorful Whites


I was playing with a Strathmore Travel Journal that I received a while back. Also thinking about doing a tutorial showing how to create colorful whites that would be something along this line. Not sure how much interest there would be.

Bubbles the Hel Kitty from Beyond the Veil


#DoodlewashAugust2021 Prompt: Bubbles.

#DoodlewashSeptember2021 Prompts: Kitty & Puppy.

Four years ago, I did a weird little drawing that I called Creature from Beyond the Veil. Facebook brought it up as a memory. I always thought the crittur looked a lot like a rather friendly Hel Hound, and so I decided to do a Hel Kitty, too. She doesn’t look quite as friendly!

Fairy Cowslip


Doodlewash August Prompt: Fairy.

Did you know that according to folklore, when fairies were frightened they would hide among the cowslips?

I realized at the last minute that I didn’t have a post for today, so this was done rather quickly.
