Squirrel


Doodlewash August Prompt: Squirrel.

Did you know that squirrels are sneaky? They’ll pretend to bury food if they think other animals are watching, and then scurry off to hide it somewhere else.

Bug Weevil Scarab


Doodlewash August Prompt: Wheatfield. ‘Cause this is the kind of fellow that farmers don’t wanna see in their wheatfields!

This was identified as a bug weevil scarab on the reference photo. Did you know there are over 97, 000 species of weevil, and around 30,000 scarab beetles. I couldn’t find anything about a weevil scarab, so I’m not sure what this is. Not even sure it’s a bug.

But my husband said he liked bugs. In that tone that suggested he’d really like me to paint a bug for him. He wanted a bug, so he got a bug. Or a bug-like, weevil-like, scarab-like thing.

She’s hiding from me!

Camera’s Off


#DoodlewashAugust2021 prompt: Lake. Yeah, those blue splotches look like lakes. I think they’re lakes.

This was meant to be one of the video examples for a review. I was this far in when I realized the camera was off. Turns out it had turned off almost immediately after I started.

If the camera hadn’t turned off, I would have continued to work on this. Having stopped when I did, I decided I liked it. Maybe that’s why it happened. The camera knew if I been paying attention to the painting rather than the review, I’d say “Somebody stop me!”

Australian Shepherd


Doodlewash August Prompt: Rabbit. A friend of a friend used to have a dog like this named Bunny. Close enough to the prompt for me!

Did you know that Australian Shepherds are not Australian? They are believed to come out of the Basque region in Spain. Basque shepherds took the dogs to Australia with them, and then on to the U.S.

European Badger


Did you know that a male badger is called a boar, a female is a sow and the babies are cubs? The Welsh call them ‘moch daear’ which means ‘earth pig’.

Waterwheel Abstract


#DoodlewashAugushtPrompt: Waterwheel.

Did you know that there are three types of waterwheel? There are horizontal waterwheels, undershot vertical waterwheels, and the overshot vertical waterwheels.

I received a really great gift of customized Erin Condren sketchbooks from my good friend, Alice Hendon, and I used one for this tangled abstract.

Tasmanian Devil


Did you know that the Tasmanian Devil was named because of their eerie scream? European settlers thought they were demons hiding in the wild?

Gelada


#DoodlewashAugushtPrompt: Robot. This guy looks evil – like he’s from one of those movies where you think we’re being invaded by homicidal zombies only to find out we’re being invaded by homicidal robots! What a plot twist!

Did you know, despite their fierce appearance, the Gelada is the only primate with a diet that is 90% grass blades? Also known as the bleeding heart baboon or bleeding heart monkey, they aren’t either, but are a genus of their own.
