Paintings Number 19 and 20

                                                             Sara, Sitting 
                                         Watercolor, 11 1/2 X 7

I just had to do another painting of our cute little grand-dog, Sara. This time she is sitting and waiting for whatever a dog waits for. Food, attention, a toy. She would probably like to snuggle into a lap the best. She has different features for a dachshund, a little more hound like around the head and chest. And her eyes are large with very dark lid linings that look like she's wearing eye liner.

Three Amigos
Watercolor on Acrylic, 10 X !0

Yes, there really are three pelicans in this painting. If you look closely you can see the neck of the third pelican in between the outer birds. Most of the brown feathers in the center are the third pelican; it's head is completely covered by the bird in front. 
The acrylic on the paper has been textured after it was painted on a watercolor background. This gives the painting depth and interest. The subject is then painted on top in watercolor.  Ten more paintings to go in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days, although the challenge will be finished before I am since I started a few days late. I'm going to try to finish 30, though.
