Last week I spoke about Peta Hewitt’s coloring competition. This week I want to show you my finished entries although I’m not as pleased as I had hoped with the way they turned out. I know this is not surprising because most artists feel this way about their work before they’re finished. If you are interested in checking out Peta’s competition or her website or blog you can find her here Peta Hewitt’s website (la-artistino.com)
Peta used three different pictures that she drew based upon an Australian theme and there are prizes for each picture.
The first is a pair of sugar gliders in a garden:
The second is a platypus napping in a stream.
The third is the Australian National flower: the waratah flower. It was a real job getting the flower petals on bottom a rich dark red and still leave the main flower with a bit of pinky maroon. (Yes, pinky is a word.)
Winners will be announced on July 4, 2016 (Peta’s birthday!) It would be nice to win but I learned about Australian flora and fauna and no finished product is useless. I only wish all my Sakura stardust pens would show up in a picture. The platypus pic is covered in glitter!
