#14: Zoo Find – 30 paintings in 30 days

OK, this time let’s have some fun. This is a photograph of my palette. I have been using nearly the same set of colors for a week now, and the palette has become…interesting. It’s like laying on your back and looking up the clouds, and seeing elephants and fishes.

I found more than 30 animals and things in the paint mixture. What can you find? See below the image for a list of what I found, starting at top left and more or less going right, then down, if you’d like some ideas.

Here’s what I found:

Doe-eyed otter at top left; to its right, a yawning bear.
A breast with a pig’s nose nipple.
Micro-elephant.
Biafran child
Parking meter
tooth
chinese gorilla
polar bear in profile
Shy cat.
Two cuddling naked turtles.
Hummingbird
Hidden elephant
Classic 50s hair-do
toad
a sheep
frog, or camel face
salamander
oyster out of shell
dinosaur, or cute crocodile
Rat with an orange fin
an alien, holding head, who has just jumped out of an airplane
A bear claw (just the one) breaking through the sound barrier
A salamander with a tattoo of a turtle’s head on its back.
a sleeping seal. A laughing seal.
I also found a moray eel, a manta ray with a carrot for a tail, ET, and a ghost from ghostbusters. An angry mouth, a jug handle, a panda with a skin problem, and an old man mediating while a naked turtle hugs his face. An atomic fireball. OK, two atomic fireballs.
