Machu Picchu Baby

sketch of baby Llama

When I downloaded this from my “Daily Sketch” folder I had to chuckle – daily has become more like weekly, but this too shall pass.  Life gets in the way, some months more than others.  This was one of the babies we saw roaming around the terrace pastures at Machu Picchu last month.  Our guide said she was probably about a day old, and Corey pointed out that her ears were so soft and floppy she looked like a Dr. Seuss cartoon.  That and her crooked little grin were so endearing!

This was water color and colored pencil, with just a bit of Photoshop tweaking to put more contrast on the right side of the sketch.
