Illustration Friday - Camouflage

I'm often impressed by the lovely camouflage nature creates. As an artist, I find myself doing things to decrease the effectiveness of nature's camouflage, so that the image shows up better. For example, in this painting of a bobwhite, I added a touch of green to the background to make the bird stand out better.

Acrylics, 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".

Illustration Friday - Rejection

This one is really late, and I'm not terribly pleased with it at that. I like the concept, just not thrilled with my rendition thereof. Still, it was fun to paint. It is titled "No More", was painted in acrylics, and is 4" x 6".
