Today for my #NatureDoodlewash hike, I had an imaginary walk across the wonderful Australia a land that I always wanted to go visit…and it didn’t happen yet! Maybe one day! For this watercolor I was inspired by a beautiful Magazine Cover that portrait a model holding a Kangaroo. A couple of weeks ago I was visiting a Barnes and Nobles Book store and I loved that cover so much that instantly I had the urge to sketch it.
I am so glad that I had my sketchbook with me and while sipping a coffee I sketched. I followed pretty much the lines and the pose, but I changed the girl expression and colors giving her a different look. I wanted her to have purple hair and be a whimsical girl. She hold the cute kangaroo on her shoulder close to her neck. It is a portrait very similar to the “Girl with a Bird” I made not long ago. I love Kangaroos and I really enjoyed to paint once again an image of love. I hope that you like it!
I also want to dedicate this illustration as symbol of friendship to all my friends here on the Blogosphere! And to all my Australian friends that are many!
Thank you to all for brightening my days! ❤
