However, I started thinking about what else I could paint on a wooden pebble and figured some of my wildlife paintings might work well. The pebbles are about one and a quarter inches wide by one and a half inches tall so it's a small surface area to work on - though not as small as the wooden beads I painted previously (see here and here). But they work really well.
This is a little blue tit that I painted on one. I don't use acrylics very often but they actually work really well on wood.
Of course I could not leave out a badger from my painting experiments. Unsurprisingly this might be my favourite.
