Bamboo Muncher-Panda

 Close ups

Oil on 5x7 canvas panel.
This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Connie was the gracious hostess.

It was really hard making a choice between all those super animal pics! I settled on the ever munching panda. Love those animals.

I have put this painting into the The Hurricane Sandy Fundraiser Auction put on by  the DPW Challenge.
The auction starting bid for this is $50.00. All proceeds will go to the Salvation Army Hurricane Sandy Relief except for $5.00 S/H. 
Check out the auction HERE and see all the great art being donated to help those who so desperately need it.

  1. Adorable, you really did a great job of using your whites in this one Dean. Love the subtle changes of value and color.
    This is a perfect example of White in the dark is similar in value to black in the light!

  2. Oh votre panda est superbe!!! on a envie de le prendre dans ses bras !...
    J'avais éprouvée beaucoup de joie à en peindre un dans une de mes peintures et j'imagine votre propre plaisir car lorsqu'on aime cet animal c'est un réel bonheur...
    Il a un regard extraordinaire! Belle peinture.
    gros bisous

  3. Hi, Julie...I admire your grasp art principals. I had heard about the white/dark values, but had forgotten over time. Love the reminder! Thank you.
