Platypus Watercolor painting

Logbook 6. December 2017

Workday with my daughter around

Text and watercolours by Frits Ahlefeldt

“Dad can you please draw a platypus” my eight years old daughter asked me, home from school today. So I painted two. Amazing animals. Bit like Mammals, and still they also have things in common with other animals. And then they look so amazing with their fur and beaks, nothing like them on the planet. When scientists first heard about them, few believed they actually existed… They still do, though close to endangered in their Australian habitats

Here are the two Platypus watercolors I painted today:
