Piggies – Mama and Baby
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! 🙂
