The Tortoise and the Hare

I decided to start a new discipline today by sketching out plans for a watercolor. I don't like sketching because I would rather dive right into an illustration and hope for the best. Maybe that is why I always feel stuck in the middle of a piece, because it is not fully thought out!  So, I started to sketch in preparation and I just kept drawing and drawing until it turned into its own little work of art. So much for sketching. But now that I have this fully thought out drawing I am excited to draw it again on watercolor paper and add color.

I know that quick sketching is an important discipline that I must learn. I will keep at it. In the mean time I hope you like this whimsical illustration of the Tortoise and the Hare..... can you find all five animals?
