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.

Cassowary- Postcards for the Lunch Bag

Doodlewash prompt: Eggshell

Did you know that the Cassowary is considered to be the world’s most dangerous bird? They have killed humans with their incredibly sharp claws. Their eggs come in various shades of pale green and blue. Once the female lays the eggs, she wanders off and the male takes care of them and then the chicks for up to a year.

This was a BIG bird to fit on a postcard, so I used Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bleedproof White to get the highlights on the feathers.

Honey Badger – Postcards for the Lunch Bag


Artwork-Zebra Zensations Technical Pen and Daniel Smith watercolor on a Hahnemühle Cold Press Watercolor Postcard.

Doodlewash prompt: Honey

All the prompts this month are based off of items whose name is also a color, the idea being to get people to explore the colors on their palette. Since I came up with the list, I feel that I should do all the prompts this month, but I still have to my postcards for the lunch bag, so I’ll have to get creative for some of these.

I decided to go with the Honey Badger for this prompt. Admittedly, he isn’t colored like honey, but I did do a honey-like background.

Did you know that the honey badger has been known to attack lions? They aren’t actually badgers at all, being closely related to wolverines.

Did you know that April 27th is World Tapir Day?

I’m playing with some new colors and combinations – mainly Tiger’s Eye Genuine and Mummy Bauxite. The result is fairly ugly, but also fairly accurate. Nonetheless, I’ll look for ways to brighten up this combination.
