The original reference photo for this drawing had a jockey and all of his racing gear (saddle, colors, bridle, etc.) on the horse. The challenge was to draw only the horse - - I think it came out ok all things considered.

The rarely seen Eggshell Walker also known as the Orange Billed Crackatory. Scientist still have no explanation for how the female is able to lay such a disproportionally large egg.

I did an underpainting first using water soluble graphite and then added the watercolor washes over the top. Still a long way to go in learning how to use watercolor paints and achieving the look I'm after.

Day 31 of Inktober 2015. I made it! Hooray!
Overall I'm pretty happy with the drawings. Some good ones - - some ok ones - - but the commitment of creating a new piece each day for 31 days was what it was all about.
This last drawing/painting is actually layer upon layer of an ink wash. 50/50 black ink and water mixed in a waterbrush and painted on watercolor paper. I then used an ebony pencil over the top to add some of the textural elements.
This gargoyle was painted from a photo I took at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Strasbourg France - - an incredibly beautiful city.
