A DONKEY AND DUCKS

I've just added two new paintings to my Etsy site.  You can see them and the others I have listed
by clicking on the red "Watercolors by Leenie" in the upper left column of my blog page.


"Donkey and Ducks" 8x10 original watercolor

The photos and sketches I used for "Donkey and Ducks" and  "Ducks on Parade," below, came from a visit to a lush valley in Peru on the Urubamba River near Ollantaytambo. It was early morning and the low angle of the sun intensified colors and made almost everything look like a work of art.

Wow, those really pop! Gorgeous work, Leenie. Ducks and donkey's - what a combo. (They are so cute.)

(Now excuse me while I go pass out from this heat wave we appear to be having.) :)

Fabulous, Leenie! Loving the ducks- they look like they are on a mission - a very serious slug getting mission!

And you took those almost-works-of-art and made them real art. I love them both, Leenie. You continue to inspire.

Great work! Watercolours are so hard to do for me - I admire your expertise and talent Leenie and love the subjects. Both paintings are delightful.

Beautiful work Leenie. I especially love the way the donkey is lit-I can just imagine that low sun.

Leenie, you are sooooo talented! My daughter says watercolors are the hardest to master. You seem to be mastering it very well!
