Inktober 2018 – Day 25 – Prickly

Hello Friends, 

Meet Prickly Pete! I got this done later today than I usually do, but here is my ink drawing for today’s prompt, “prickly.”

The best part of my day today was getting to visit with my daughter for a few hours. She’s been staying in town all week because of work, but she loves her job at the doughnut shop. She usually goes in around 5 or 6 in the morning. So she still has a lot of her day left when she gets off. I am proud of her and glad she loves her job. So it was nice to have her home for a couple of days.

Well, I hope everyone has been having a great week. I am not sure how many more days of Inktober I will do. I am reading LOTS of picture books and still doing the online art classes at https://www.svslearn.com/

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

Inktober 2018 – Day #18 – Bottle

Hello Friends,

I just took a few minutes to sketch this out. The prompt for today is “bottle.” As you can see, my bottle has a message in it. I wonder what it says?

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

Inktober 2018 – Day 15 – Weak

Hello Friends,

Here’s what came to mind for the prompt of “weak” today! 🙂

This was a fun one to do! I don’t often draw people and to do just a cartoon sketch was great!

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

Inktober 2018 – Day #12 – Whale

Hello Friends,

Today’s prompt for Inktober is whale. You may recognize this whale. I did a watercolor/ink drawing of him a long time ago! I love Beluga whales so much! They always look like they are smiling!

So I drew him again but with different colors. I used ink and my Arteza Real Brush Pens.

Now back to resting my shoulder! This didn’t take long at all and the brush pens are super light and easy to use!

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

Beluga Whale – Pen and Ink and Watercolor

Beluga Whale

 

Hello everyone.  Well, I said I was going to start doing more sea creatures besides sea turtles, so here’s one!  I had already been thinking about doing a Beluga whale before I saw the movie of Finding Dory.  But writing my last post inspired me to just do it!  So Wednesday morning I sat down and looked for a good photo from one of my sea creature books.  This one is from the book called Under the Sea and was published in 2014 by Sally Morgan and Camilla de la Bedoyere.  It is a gorgeous large book for children with beautiful pictures.  I drew this by sight – no tracing!  But what was most challenging was doing the color of the whale with its shadows, etc.  I really love the way it turned out.  It just looks so happy which is how they look naturally!  (Now my daughter wants it.)

Next will probably be another sea turtle that I had already drawn in pen and ink and forgot about!

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