Art Every Day Month - Day 29

Reuben and Brodie - ink and gouache ACEO (2.5 X 3.5 inches)

The end of the challenge is nigh!! I'm very glad I saw it all the way through as, although it was surprisingly difficult to be creative every day, it also helped me to come up with ideas I might not have had or just might not have gotten round to trying otherwise. So I'd like to say a massive thanks to Leah over at Creative Every Day for hosting this Art Every Day Month challenge and taking me out of my comfort zone!

Today's submission for AEDM Day 29 is another ACEO.  I started drawing this with the intention of sticking to the doodimal theme of the week but at the last minute I decided to use gouache as I think I might do a larger doodimal version of these two wee fur babies. Of course, I may be biased but they're my two favourites subjects - they've been done in stippled ink, watercolour, inspired a whole series of greetings cards and now gouache.

The real Reuben (r) and Brodie (l) - my fur babies

This is the week in review:

Day 23: A log cabin themed painted bird house with a woodpecker.

Day 24: A Seahorse doodimal ACEO

Day 25: A Dolphin doodimal ACEO

Day 26: A Starfish doodimal ACEO

Day 27: A Baby Sloth doodimal ACEO

Day 28: A pair of Love birds doodimal ACEO

Only one more day to go!
