lion cubs

Thank you to wet canvas for the reference photos for these lions. The cubs were fun to draw with their big paws and  all that loose skin.  I think I worked the hardest on trying to get that gaze that the lioness had.

This one makes me chuckle. This is my little dog, Payton. He is FIFTEEN!!!  I had fun with this painting and let it sit and sit for the longest time. I wanted to add more…. and more… and more, so it just sat. I finally decided that everything I wanted to add was not in how he looked but who he is and I hope I captured enough of him that you know what I mean when I say this falls short. Many of you share your homes with pets that are dear for all sorts of reasons.  Pictures and words just fall a bit short.  So, I decided this was finished.

So you could see how I added the watercolor, this is my initial drawing and wash with the Elegant Writer:

This pen will become part of the tools I use in the future.  Here was my tutorial on how the Elegant Writer can be used.
