I’m having problems with my back, so my posting may be spotty for a few days. You never know with your back.

Doodlewash prompt: Emerald. My emerald duck didn’t come out very emerald-y and looks a bit dull, but he’s actually green and shiny because I used some interference colors on him.

Did you know that ducks have three eyelids? One on top, one on bottom, and a clear one on the side, that acts much like goggles!

Doodlewash prompt: Greyhound

Did you know that grey is an unusual color for a greyhound? And when they are grey, they are called blue? There are differing theories on the name’s origin, but one of the most popular is that the word came from the old English word ‘grei’, which meant dog, and ‘hundr’, which meant hunter.

      Did you know that you can tell what color a golden retriever puppy will be as an adult, by looking at the tips of its ears?

        California Scrub Jay – Postcards for the Lunch Bag

        Doodlewash Prompt: Blue Jays. I took the liberty of painting a scrub jay – they’re as blue as blue jays, since none of them are actually blue. It’s just a trick of the light. True fact.

        Did you know that jays are related to magpies and crows?

        Doodlewash prompt: Blonde. I’m sure this beautiful blonde is the envy of all the other yaks!

        Did you know that yak milk is often made into chhurpi, a hardened yak milk cheese can take several hours to chew. This cheese can be stored for years and is perfect for long trips in cold climates.

          Doodlewash prompt: Silver Fox

          Did you know that the silver fox is just a color variation of the red fox? About 10% of the population has the silver fur, and it varies from bluish gray to almost black.

          It’s funny the way that we perceive color. I used lavender, amethyst and a yellow orange, but given the deep shadows, I think you can be convinced that this is a silver fox in the dusk. Am I right?

          Doodlewash Prompt: Raspberry Tart

          Did you know that originally pie was considered a dish for commoners, while the tart was a food for nobility?

          It’s my birthday today, and I can eat as much of this tart as I want because it is calorie-free.
