Dik Dik – Postcards from the Lunch Bag

Another quick post today, because my free Netflix trail ends soon and it’s very important that I see every episode of ‘Lost in Space’!

A fully grown dik-dik is about 12-16 inches tall at the shoulders, weighing 7-15 pounds. Fortunately, they can also run about 26 miles an hour, because their small size makes them a favorite snack size for predators.

I was goofing off last night, but I do have several projects to complete before Christmas and I know everyone else is going to be crazy busy. I decided that I’m going to cut down my posts to 3-4 times a week until after the first of the year. Hopefully, that will give me more time to do more interesting posts.

  1. How do you like the DaVinci gouache? Seems it has a nice range of colors, but I’ve not yet tried those. I like your painting of this interesting animal, dik dik, anotther one new to me. You’re wise to adjust your posts, because I look forward to seeing your new Christmas projects! I hope you didn’t miss Lost in Space! I, too, am a sci-fi junkie. We’ve been re-watching the entire Star Wars series before seeing the new one that comes out next month!

    1. I haven’t made up my mind about the Da Vinci yet because so far this is all I’ve done with them. I only bought four colors, Magenta, Violet, Burnt Sienna and Raw Sienna to round out the colors from the Holbein set. They are a great deal because they come in 37 ml tubes. My first impression is that they are not quite as vibrant or quick to re-wet as the Holbein or Miya gouache, but that could be because none of the colors are vibrant pigments. I want to really give them a test like I did with the Holbein, but I only got them yesterday. Charlie is going to ask them if they’d be interested in having a review done so I may get more of them.
