Bull Shark Pencil Drawing

Hello Friends,

Last night I decided to finish the pencil drawing I started last week of this bull shark. It has appeared here already but without all of the sea foliage and shadow. I didn’t do it exactly like the photo in the book called Creatures of the Deep by Erich Hoyt, but it is similar.Β I think the next couple of pencil drawings I plan to do are of a viperfish and anglerfish. If you’ve never seen them, look them up. They are pretty scary looking!

I have learned that after doing pencil drawings like this, I have to rest my arm. Once I start working on something in the evening, I find myself still drawing hours later I guess because I am somewhat of a perfectionist. πŸ˜‰

Anyway, today I may get back to the leafy sea dragon painting if I can get the colors mixed the way I want them. Painting is actually easier on my arm than drawing but I really love both!!

I haven’t prepared the walls in the spare bedroom for painting yet. I am not sure if I should take on that project right now. The walls are still a nice blue color and we still have the paint so I may must touch it up. I do want to start hanging my sea creatures, although I’m not sure I want to invest in framing everything. So I need to figure out something to do with the pencil drawings.

I hope everyone is having a great week! I had to break up some potential Wompus and Brownie snarls yesterday. Wompus growls at Brownie, and sometimes Brownie barks at her. But I think they are getting used to being in the same room together when I am in here working.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!Β  πŸ™‚

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. Thanks for visiting! :)

  3. Looks good. Captured slight bend in body at dorsal fin well so it seems zig-zagging on ocean floor. .

  7. That’s a great one – there’s so much detail in it so I can see why it must have been hard on your arm. I love how the shark stands out from the background while looking like a part of it at the same time.

    • Thanks, Jill! It was a fun one to do. I think I’ll get back to my painting before I start another pencil drawing, though. Drawing in pencil is a lot harder on my body! Ha, ha!! πŸ˜‰ But so is writing! Yesterday I worked on another idea. You’d like this story I think; it’s about Katty Wompus! (And a lot of it is actually true.) πŸ™‚ But I still need to start doing a little research for an article idea. I am thinking about writing about either the anglerfish or the viperfish. They are both deep sea creatures that are interesting even though they are pretty scary looking! Have a great day, Jill! πŸ™‚


  8. Well done πŸ™‚ πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘


  9. Very cool. Your values and cross-contours really evoke depth.


  10. Nice job, Patsy. He looks just like the kind of shark I want to meet when I’m swimming. The harmless kind, right? Haha. Too bad I would have a heart attack just the same.


  11. Thanks for the link! πŸ™‚
