Iberian Lynx in Pencil

😼 👀HELLO SUGARS! THIS INCREDIBLE CREATURE CAN BE FOUND IN SPAIN.

Patsy's Creative Corner

Hello Friends!

Last night I finished drawing this Iberian Lynx. This was a fun “big cat” to draw!

I find that drawing animal fur is actually relaxing. I used to think it felt frustrating and monotonous years ago when I first began drawing, though. But I enjoy drawing furry animals so much that now I just find it a soothing challenge.

I hope you are all doing well. I also hope today is the first day of healing for the United States of America!

Have a wonderful day! 😀

Acrylic on canvas 30 X 30 in

I have been part of this group for about 10 years now and each exhibition has served as a fund raiser for a cause we support in West-Island Montreal.

For our Spring exhibition we partner with Nova West Island and this marks our 32nd year of occasion collaborating with them to raise funds for this community-based charitable health care organization. Due to Covid, we had to cancel our exhibition last year but we are coming back virtually for this 2021 edition.

One third of all sales during the show will be donated to NOVA West Island. 38 artists are taking part this year. There will be paintings in a variety of media and styles, some drawings, pastels, textile art and…

My Spiritual Turtle

✏️ 🐢 SO TRUE DARLINGS, A TURTLE IS A DIFFERENT ANIMAL TO SKETCH.

My Kawaii Quarter

Finally made it to the last lesson of Tracy Verdugo’s Story Painting classes! This painting was completed a few weeks ago already but I have been so busy, and meanwhile other paintings took precedent with Easter-themes etcetera that I didn’t get around to write about it till now. In this lesson, we choose our “spirit animal”. We first jot down how we are feeling at the moment and based on that find an animal that symbolizes our thoughts. Most people would have guessed I’d choose a cat but remember, it’s about choosing something that symbolizes our thoughts, not our favorite animal!

My Spiritual Animal

At the time, I was feeling a bit stressed with organizing the new house and wanting to slow down a bit. I need to be more patient with the developments. All I want to do too is just relax and let the world go by, patiently…

Bounding Bunny

🐰🌄 WELL SISTERS, SKETCHING ANIMALS IS SO INTERESTING, BUT CATCHING THEM IN ACTION IS SOMETHING MORE FUNNY.

Heni's Happy Paintings

BOUNDING BUNNY 1000 Bounding Bunny – acrylic painting by Heni Sandoval

I have just completed a new painting, Bounding Bunny.  The lovely springlike weather we are enjoying here in Atlanta has inspired me to have some fun playing with color around a leaping cottontail rabbit.   I’m pleased with the sense of movement that the painting conveys.

When looking back at a similar painting done last year, Two Rabbits in the Meadow; I remember my struggle with the foreground, having to rework it many times.  I prefer the new painting, there’s more movement in the sky and the little bunny is leaping.  This new painting came together easily.

As I wrote before, the rabbit symbolizes good luck and abundance.   In the past few days I’ve sold four items from my two etsy shops, which is  encouraging as Etsy sales had slowed  down last year.  I’ve also gotten new framed prints up at the Fly Biscuit…

Gallery Pig

🐷 HI DARLINGS, IN MY OPINION, FARM ANIMALS ARE WORTHY, HOWEVER THE ARE TOO MUCH SLAUGHTERED.

How to Write About Art

I came across a delightful charcoal drawing of pigs, made by the artist and professor, Allen William Seaby, which he sketched one camping holiday in the New Forest. I was at the St Barbe’s Gallery, Lymington, and although you can’t take pictures of the exhibits, they support you sketching any image. So I did a quick one of the pig :). Simple outline in biro, with some diagonal line shading- enough to show it’s a pig! Happy drawing!

Robins Foraging and Memories

🌬️ HELLO DEARS! I ADORE A ROBIN BEAUTY AND IN MY OPINION THIS WORK IS VERY GENUINE AS ALSO THIS POEM.

Rum and Robots

Poem by Joni Caggiano 02/01/21 – Photo by Jakob Owens – Unsplash

slicing my feet with memories sticking between my tiny toes
cold earth with her crackling leaves of brown and red
stuck in cotton and tobacco fields with memories he knows

leaves dancing in the sun while moist soil summons the birds
eating worms drowning in the water beneath the cover
same place you unearthed me, shaking, no ears for my words

closing my eyes, listening to the robins’ chorus as they do feast
standing on God’s earth, I find my strength, standing tall
years bounce like silly putty, hula hoops, and also you, my beast

washing, a sponge saturated with grief wringing her out like spit
firmly I grow roots sprouting from small but sturdy feet
my spirit dancing now with robins as an angel flies along for a bit

Drawing to TV

🐴 HI LOVELIES! AS YOU ALREADY KNOW TO DRAW A HORSE IS NOT EASY, HOWEVER HERE IS A GREAT AND FRESH SKETCH ABOUT THIS ANIMAL.

Belinda Broughton

Busy day with an old friend. Therefore some quick play in front of the screen. I did these while watching Everyone’s a Critic on (Australian) ABC television. The first episode. It’s quite a gorgeous series about ordinary people engaging with art in Australian Galleries. I did these while they talked about an artwork called The Journey by Judith Wright. She lost a newborn baby and apparently the amazing sculptural work is about that. It is very hard to google this visual artist because of the poet, who I also love, and also her poems about birth though her children lived.

I haven’t drawn with pencils for the longest time. Usually I use pens. But I am really enjoying the ease of creating tone. They are much more forgiving. I always remember Brett Whiteley’s poem on drawing materials. Here is an excerpt about the ubiquitous pencil:

The pencil is the…

Acrylic painting – Bird ladies: Magpie

🖤🤍🖤🤍🖤 SO TRUE DARLINGS, I LOVE MAGPIES BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY SOCIABLE ‘PEOPLE’.

Soila Art

So, an acrylic painting for a change. I ran out of proper watercolor paper and I had purchased these tiny golden fluid acrylics paints that I wanted to try out, so I decided to do this series in acrylics then.

Theme here is, since I have not been painting people for quite a while and I have also had an idea in my head on drawing some birds, thus ladies and birds = Bird ladies. First lady being now a magpie with a little bling bling. (I feel like a treasure hoarding magpie sometimes, so this bird was my first inspiration 😀 )

This time I first started by drawing the image on iPad and then printed the image in two A4 parts for tracing the lines through window. Since I used a lighter paper, the drawing printed in black lines was very clearly visible behind the paper. (usually I…
