Seahorse

🌊🐴⚓ THIS SKETCH DOES NOT JUST PROVE TO BE MADE BY A GREAT ARTIST. ALSO IT ALLOWS HER TO BE ABLE TO SEE BEINGS AND CREATURES THAT WE NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

Mallaband-Brown

Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was idyllic. Today I was sitting feeling sorry for myself, then my hubby asked me to draw a seahorse like I had drawn on the beach last week. So today’s drawing is a Seahorse from my imagination, it would be idyllic to see a mythological beast like this. Used an old black felt pen because it gave nice soft lines…

The Shimmer

👁️‍🗨️ HELLO BEAUTIES! CAPTURING A MOVING MOTIF, IS ALWAYS A CHALLENGE FOR ANYONE WHO LIKES TO SKETCH.

Drawn In

Did you know that a group of hummingbirds is called a shimmer? Hummingbirds don’t “flock” together, the way many bird species do, so several names have come to describe them as a group. You can also call them a charm, a glittering, a tune, a bouquet, or a hover. Truth be told, I have only seen hummingbirds individually of late, but painting several in different positions seemed a better way to capture their movement, beauty, and vitality.

The Shimmer, watercolor, 8×10″

Tips and Techniques– When you are painting birds, do you ever overwork them to the point of killing them on paper? With such complex feather patterns and colors, that’s not an uncommon thing to do. It’s exactly what happened on my first attempt at painting hummingbirds last week. I immediately got too tight, and soon the birds looked static and lifeless. Even though I had invested…

Souvent la fable…

🐾🐾 SO TRUE SUGARS, ANIMALS ARE ALWAYS TEACHING US AND FABLES ARE A PERFECT LESSONS.

Désert Occidental

Tu dis quoi ?

Souvent la fable
veut nous convaincre
Du caractère animal du bon sens

Les objets en demeure de faire pareil ou même
S’arment de patience.

Ainsi
Les seaux ont bien des anses
Attendant de pouvoir voyager
& les murs des oreilles
Tout en restant très muets.

À l’inverse, il est vrai
Les sots ont des oreilles
& trainent les rumeurs
Avec certaine aisance.

mirliton

Se promener, flâner, musarder, se balader, se baguenauder, glander…le temps est radieux, un peu frais, la vague à peine retroussée, le regard se perd dans un horizon mal défini qu’une brume lumineuse estompe…Vous arrivez, courant, soufflant, je m’écrase contre la haie toute bourdonnante d’activité qui borde le chemin des douaniers. Les yeux nulle part, vous passez sans voir ; des papillons en tenue de soirée batifolent, les frelons asiatiques siphonnent avidement le suc des fleurs, un nuage d’ailes translucides crépite autour de moi…

African Wild Dog

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 HI DEARS! THE EXPRESSION OF THIS SKETCH IS SO ACHIEVED, THAT IS ALREADY ENOUGH AND DOESN’T NEED ANY EXPLANATION.

Melanie Franz

A friend gave me the book Solo the Story of an African Wild Dog by Hugo Van Lawick.

I knew nothing about wild dogs beforehand. Absolutely loved the story which is a description of a pack of wild dogs and in particular the story of Solo, one of the cubs.

I only learned that the story of Solo is somewhat famous after reading the book. I certainly had fun sketching this little dog.

HILTON BANKSIDE

🏙️🐶🎨 HELLO SISTERS! SOMETIMES INSPIRATION IS IN THE STREET. A FUNNY EXPERIENCE.

DALTONSART

The above photos are a few images from a 3 day live painting session. All in aid of a bit of exposure for the new Hilton Hotel near Bankside. Sat at a corner on Southwark street near London Bridge for 11 hours in total, a completely different work environment then usual, but I completed a canvas that depicts the new building and a massive fox…. ‘A FOX? Why is there a fox?’

OH! I’m glad you asked. Well it is a fox themed hotel, and apparently the story goes that the fox was there first customer! As when they were building this new hotel, a fox was found sleeping inside.

winter faerie

🤍❄️🤍 HELLO DARLINGS! COLD IS HERE AND A GREAT FAMILY PORTRAIT TOO. GREAT ART, CONGRATS!

Gretchen Del Rio's Art Blog

watercolor 1/2021

‘I wonder if the snow loves the trees

and the fields, that it kisses them so gently?

And then it covers them up snug,

you know with a white quilt;

and perhaps it says “Go to sleep,

darlings, til the summer comes again.’

…………….Lewis Caroll

I painted this for my daughter. It joins another earlier Christmas piece which only comes to view during the holidays. It’s like bringing out all those ornaments for the tree. Always a bit of magic felt.

I would give to you peace and light for this new year.
