Art Day!

Painted with my best painting buddy Jay today. We decided to paint the dreaded pineapple, our nemesis, because we had such a hard time painting it in the past. This is my first watercolor of a pineapple. My first attempt a long time ago was actually in oils.

Why does the pineapple look like it's rotting? Because it was! It's a week old. It smelled nice while we were painting it though because it was overripe. The painting is a bit sloppy - I was sleepy-painting it because I woke up super early to go to the zoo and draw animals. I think it turned out ok enough to post though. Here are my zoo drawings:





and BEFORE the zoo, I sketched outside of a coffee shop where there was this super cute puppy cocker spaniel:
I hope you had your own good day!

The pineapple is great! Love the way you paint it with watercolors.
The animal sketches are also fantastic. Good job.
