Draw a Bird Day

Thanks to Teresa I know it’s draw a bird day today so I threw this together because that is my favorite challenge. Better a naff bird than no bird 🐦.

 

It’s a bit dark. Throw some snow at it.

Next time I shall spend way more time on it and paint one.

Any bird suggestions for next time?

Draw a Bird Day!

Sometimes it’s better when there’s no time to think.

Have a great day!

Ewe Knews

Introducing a new news segment today folks. Ewe News will be every Monday and it would be fun if the news reader had a name. Any suggestions?

On with the news. Ms. Ewe (I will call her for now. Looks more like a guy but I forgot horns 😉) doesn’t like to report the worst news it brings her out in a rash so we endeavor to only share interesting/funny stuff.

Today’s news is about a cat who thinks she’s a sheep and becomes their leader.

That’s all the news we have this week. See ewe next Monday for more Ewe Knews.

Have a great week!

ESPN where are you?

We recently switched from cable t.v.to satellite. The menu is crazy! I don’t think we have ESPN (breathes into paper bag).

Tennis was on TSN but now has gone over to ESPN and a new tennis station which is extra (I may have to get that ;)).

Just a tad frustrated 😖 lol

Anyone else watching tennis?

Sheep Scribbles

As I get organised for Christmas sending out parcels and cards to England I’m going to do scribbles in the car for blog posts for a bit.

I’m actually tidying up some problem areas in the house for a change too and I’ve just been to the dentist.

I often wondered how illustrators are so good at doing characters but after one particular scribble I thought the hair would look good as a Scottish cap so he’s now a Scottish sheep.

You don’t have to know before you start what it’s going to be.

Happy Creating!

Skull for #drawlloween

It would be fun to try a skull in mixed media some time.

I feel like I could have done something more intricate. Must be getting lazy 😉

Anyone think of a skull poem?

#Inktober #drawlloween Frankenstein’s Monster

There is no more interesting character than Frankenstein’s monster and after seeing that as the #drawloween prompt today I had to join in. Next year I’ll know to join from the start and actually have a theme running 😉

I love this painting of Frankenstein’s monster I found on Pinterest so that was my muse.

I never know when to stop painting but I seem to have a better grasp on when to stop drawing. Here it is a bit earlier:

Notice if you don’t get the proportions and likeness right at the start you’ve got no chance later on.

I fancy painting a Frankenstein monster some time. Check out more at #drawlloween.

#Inktober Day 9: Otter

image

I’ve saved some cute animal pics from Pinterest and the kids begged me to draw this otter first.

Cuteness!

Isn’t it great after a week or so I think I’m confident to sketch in pen without pencil first in future.

Encourage your kids to do the same. I saw some great artwork on the walls at school yesterday. Kids portraits made up of words. I wonder how they move the words around. I must investigate.

Happy Friday!
