Well I Never... by rieke-b Well I Never... by rieke-b
Watercolours, opaque white and watercolour pencils, about 30x25cm.

I was inspired by a great landscape photo, made several changes to create something original and added a lynx, but then I felt there was something missing. I wanted to do something unusual for my Christmas 2012 painting, so I discussed it with my sister. Somehow, the outcome was a kangaroo (or wallaby, to be precise).

What’s an albino kangaroo doing there? Any ideas? :D


Aquarell, Deckweiß und Aquarellbuntstifte, ca. 30x25cm.

Ich wurde von einem tollen Landschaftsfoto inspiriert, veränderte aber einiges, um etwas Eigenes zu zeigen, und fügte einen Luchs hinzu, aber dann hatte ich das Gefühl, dass noch etwas fehlen würde. Ich wollte für mein Weihnachtsbild 2012 etwas Ungewöhnliches machen und diskutierte es mit meiner Schwester. Irgendwie kam ein Känguru (oder Wallaby, um genau zu sein) dabei heraus.

Was hat das Albino-Känguru dort zu suchen? Was meint ihr? :D

Remarkable! You really captured the beauty of snow, it looks fantastic. :omg: I think whites are really had to work with, and you accomplished them so well!

Haha, thanks! :D I really needed lots and lots of layers of watery paint and had to be careful with the white areas, but the masking liquid was very helpful. :)

Kangaroo!! or walaby. I love all of these artworks. I would honestly be honoured if I had any one of these in my room or in my house. However it's a shame that not all of these are for sale and even the ones that are, I'm not allowed to buy, but this is a truly wonderful peice of art.

P.S da kangaroo is magical and he teleported from Australia (lol where I live X3) to the lynx because they're best friends X3

The frame of the tree makes a heart around the lynx! :la: It's a beautiful landscape, and I think both animals are curious as to why they're there. LOL ;)

There were similar shaped trees on the photo that inspired me and I changed it to make it look more like a heart. :)
Sure, maybe both of them ended up somewhere they don't belong! :D

It's a Christmas miracle?! That or it escaped a zoo or something and wandered there. Oh, I just noticed the heart-shape of the scenery! Nicely done.
