Piggies – Mama and Baby

 

 

Hello Friends,

Here is my finished drawing of the mama and baby piggies.  I use Faber-Castell and Prismacolor graphite pencils.  I kept thinking parts of it weren’t dark enough so I worked on it quite a bit over the last few days.  Again, I drew this from a photo in the book, “The Wisdom of Moms – Love and Lessons From the Animal Kingdom” by Bridget E. Hamilton.  I did not trace the picture, though.  I have been trying to draw more by sight than tracing the outlines of things exactly.  But sometimes, I have to.  Also, I didn’t spend a lot of time working on the straw they are laying in.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  Yesterday I worked on tracing a giraffe in ink and getting it drawn onto watercolor paper with the aid of my light board.  It is about 8.5″ x 17″!  If I feel like starting the painting later today, I may do that after I work out…exercise has kind of been going by the wayside lately, and my back is yelling at me to get to it!  I have certain physical issues that require not neglecting exercising a few times a week if not every day.

Hopefully, sometime this week I will get the post done of the other animals we saw at Turtle Bay.  Also, my husband got a couple of good pictures of our 15 year old dog, Brownie, that I need to adjust, print out, and draw and paint for the pet portrait auction I mentioned a few posts ago.  And…of course I am still working on my research for the sea turtle article I have to write for my writing class!  It is good to be busy, though.  I am thankful I can do all of this.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!  🙂

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
