The rubber ducky pirates were such a hit, I decided to get some more out and use them for models. Here are 2 more small paintings - both Twenty Minute Challenge watercolor sketches (from blank paper to finish in 20 minutes).

Land Ho! --------->
(7" x 10" on Arches hot press 140# paper)

And this one I'm calling
Butch and Sundance
(7" x 11" on Arches hot press 140#)

Hope you get a kick out of them and it brightens your day.

It's funny...if I didn't know what that was, I'd probably guess say it looks like rubber ducky in a pirate hat with a spyglass...and I wouldn't expect to get it right! Fun sketches, good practice.

I'm glad you knew what it was, Nick. I wouldn't want you to tell people you saw little rubber duckies in pirate hats! ha ha

LOL, Gillian, you've definitely named this one! ha ha said...

I did get a kick out of them.
