Spain-IA Challenge

This week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue was Spain. I've been many places, and even though I've never been to Spain, the idea for this one came pretty easily. I love animals so I googled animals of Spain. Well, the first one I came across was the Bat which are apparently prevalent in Spain and actually the symbol of the city of Valencia. If you are a new reader to my blog, go here, to see why I wasn't going to "touch" that one. I decided to go with the perhaps more well-known and safer Bull.
Day of The Dead Style Bull ACEO 2.5 x 3.5 inches.



Stop by and see all the wonderful art that has been created inspired by Spain!

Looks like he is getting ready to charge! I like the color choice and the lace effect reminds me of the beautiful lace from Europe.

Just read your bat post, thank goodness everything turned out well!

What a cool bull! Great drawing and the doodling is a good addition. You should move Spain to the top of your visit list - there is so much inspiration for an artist there, you'll run the risk of being overwhelmed!

This bull is cool! You should have called him "The Horny Bull"! LOL! I love the bat story! "Sailor mouth" LOL! Have a great day!

This bull is AMAZING. Very impressive. His saddle is gorgeous and so is your art.

Your bat story hits all too close to home. The ones I encountered lived in my next door neighbor's chimney. The only good thing about them (and I mean THEM with a big T) was they kept the mosquito population at bay in the summer. Thankfully, I was never bitten by one, so it's good your hubby took the shots.

Great work this week. I love the mix of the strong outline with the softer doodles. It reminded me of hand painted spanish ceramics...as to the Bat story... yikes... the bats in our state carry a virus called Hendra Virus which is deadly to both horses and humans, so everyone stays away from bats. Smart move sticking with the bull I think.
