Part of our figure painting homework is to do a themed drawing/painting every week in our sketchbook (after researching an illustration in the same theme). The first week was animal, I found an illustration by Jill Bennett from Roald Dahl's "Fantastic Mr. Fox", which was a favorite book of mine as a child. I painted a Donkey. I need to work on contrast and figured it would be a good space to practice.
Also, I picked up a pack of tiny Ampersand watercolor boards just to try them out and I figured my girl in the striped shirt got rejected from the car illustration so I'd make use of her here, lest she never be seen again.
