"Thirsty" oil painting

oil on gessoed board 
Just off my easel 12x16 oil painting of a tiger drinking. I would love to say that I painted from my own photo but since I have never witnessed a tiger drinking, I want to thank Emmanuel Keller for offering his amazing photography for use as reference in this painting."

"German Shorthair Pointer" ink wash

Ink wash
Now that the challenge is over, I am working on commissions that I was working on in between my daily posts. I have a logo commission and this is the first of 7 ink drawings that will be part of the logo. I like working in black and white as a change of pace paying attention to my values (lights and darks) so the subjects look realistic.
