Galapagos Islands fauna

We are running a project on animals from the Galapagos Islands this month in the classical forum at wetcanvas.com.

Here are 2 preliminary watercolour studies I did to become familiar with the forms and also to get back into watercolours after a long break from them.  Also to get used to working from photos again.


'Little and large', marine iguana study


'Pair bond', study of blue footed booby bird


I was inspired by the Flickr photos of the galapagos fauna by John Whitaker, who kindly gave us permission to use his photos in our art community project.


I am not sure if I will go on to do a final painting in watercolours...we have until the end of the month or perhaps even until the end of next month to play with this project!

Bye for now....
