Schleich Animals II

There is a game where you shake and tumble out a bunch of pigs--not sure how that goes, but it's fun to do that with all these animals! I had to remind myself to paint. I did move these around a bit. The lamb is the one standing, the zebra looks stricken. It seems the lamb is protecting these larger wilder animals.
Watercolor, 7"x 7"

Here are some of my granddaughter's paintings and drawings--she asked me if her paintings are better than mine--no doubt about it! Some of you may have noticed that I'm no longer posting collaborations. My granddaughter has started to create her own stories--she no longer splashes on the paint, baby style, so I'm leaving them be!
That's my granddaughter with me and my husband in the middle. While she was painting, she asked, "do you mind being orange?" nope!
She decorated a package being sent out to my mom--this is a princess of course.

Hi Sue! I just love these paintings of P's animals. Cecilia has several of those, along with a huge box full of smaller ones. I've taken many a photograph of them (I love the way she arranges them while playing) but I've never drawn them. Maybe I'll try! Also -- P's paintings & drawings are great! I love seeing those.

Hi Tracey, thanks for the comment--yes I have too many toys hanging around just for one child, but some are fun to draw!
