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.

      Doodlewash Prompt: Wheat

      Did you know that wheat is used in particle board, paper, hair conditioners, adhesives, plastics, cups, golf tees, medical swabs, charcoal and more?

      I don’t think it shows in the scan, but it ended up with almost an iridescent look around the wheat stalks, even though I didn’t use any metallics, iridescent, pearlescent or sparkly of any kind. I was surprised.

      Did you know that according to folklore, bluebells ring at daybreak to wake the fairies? Probably not true, lol, but it’s fun to wonder what bluebells ringing might sound like.
