The Alphabet Paintings: O

After all the emotion  invested in V: The Other Side of the River, I decided to do a painting that made me laugh.
Also, having neglected the Alphabet paintings,  decided it was time to start again and not lose them.

What on earth could make me laugh in a painting that began with O?
I have just the thing at home.
He's a lovely little animal, all shades of green and he's always cheerful.
When I first saw him many years ago, it was love at first sight.

Here he is, in watercolour, hope he makes you smile too :)

Oscar, the Ornamental Pig

  15. Hi Pat. Oh, this is wonderful ... he makes me smile too. I bet you have a great collection of ornaments like him ? Love that green - W&N green gold perhaps ?

  16. Thanks, Michael. I have an eclectic collection, ornament wise. Oscar, then a stone coloured gryphon, some Waterford animals and some Felt Pets.

    Good guess, but I mixed the greens, using olive green as a base, adding cad yellow, sap green and french ultra.

    maybe they should give a statue of him at the Oscars rather than the rather intimidating looking man!
