Musings for the Month.

 With the Lion painting taking up most of my time off work,and looking after the mischievous little puppy that we are looking after at the moment, I was only able to watch the wildlife from the window. Until a neighbour came round with a Elephant Hawkmoth he had found. I took some photos then placed it among the garden shrubs for it to feed. Such a weird looking thing but what a beauty they turn into.

 On one day I took some time to watch the butterflies around the Buddleia to the front of our house, highlight was a Painted Lady, but in total I watched 7 species feeding away.

And finally to the last painting I have completed "The Lion".

The Zebra

 My latest watercolour painting, The Zebra. I had wanted to paint this for some time and finally got round to it. As per norm I started with the eye, it took a few attempts before I was happy with the result and could move on with the rest.
