Just because I'm doing animals it doesn't mean it also has to be a pet. Right now I am visiting family up in Maine, and a Maine trip wouldn't be right without having lobster for dinner at some point. I had no qualms about sketching the poor thing before his demise.
For this painting I used watercolors, my Elegant Writer pen which bleeds to a nice blue grey, and a black brush pen.

Tonight I also did a sketch for the Wet Canvas Scavenger Hunt which I have been neglecting. We are given 26 items to sketch in whatever medium we wish. We post them as we do them. This sketch counts for a door, a corner of a room, a lamp, a comfortable place to sit, a pillow, and some books. It is a fun way to get in practice sketching all sorts of items you would probably never draw.
