CHICO  Carol's Chihuahua

CHICO Carol's Chihuahua

I took one look at his picture and Chico stole my heart!

My interest in drawing began because I wanted to do a pencil drawing of my own lovely dog, - a thirteen year old Blonde Labrador.

I hope I have done Chico justice, for Carol.
Best wishes, Gemma H

Hi Gemma
You have created a lovely drawing of Chico, thank you! Just by looking at your drawing, I feel like Chico is in the room with me. Great job Gemma!

I will add the link to your page on Carol's page so she can look at your terrific drawing.

Golden retriever

by Sharon Du Plessis
(Gauteng, South Africa)


This was an experimental exercise with feather and ink!
On this drawing I had a time limit to complete the drawing of what I SEE, and not about details.
This was the end result of a 30 minute-time limit, and wow, was I impressed with my achievement!
I am considering to frame my drawings, seeing I feel that hiding it in a folder, just don't 'cut' it for me- it should have been displayed all over my walls in my house!
I just wasn't sure that others would take the time to carefully analyse and absorb the drawings with an artistic-eye, although negative comments only makes me stronger- I handle critics well- by asking them what they do see. Most of the time I can 'read' their body-language, which tells me if they have an artist's-eye/not.
I just take the comments from who it comes, accordingly. No huffing or puffing for me, thanks.

Note from Kerry:

Sharon, I think you will be surprised how many people would love to be gifted with your artwork - just ask them because they will frame it and proudly display it at home. It sure beats it being filed away somewhere, it is made to be admired.
I love your work, your attitude and your spirit. I enjoy the experiments that you carry out, I feel like I'm there with you and it's great fun!

Drawing of a Husky

by Sheri
(Hobart Tasmania)


This is a picture of a Husky that I was asked to draw. I have drawn many animals on commission, and I am pleased with the response from buyers when they see my art work of their loved pets.

People often say, "Oh I could never draw like that..". The truth is that ANYBODY who really wants to CAN!!!

I have used charcoal, a smudge stick (or a cotton bud will do) and my little finger. To achieve beautiful soft tones, just smudge! It really is easy. Practice and enjoy.

My eraser is only a tool to lighten certain areas - not to "rub out".

I am a self taught artist, I am still learning and always will be. Have a GO!!

Sheri

Note from Kerry:
Hi Sheri,
I love your drawing, it is so beautiful and very well done. Your Husky has an adorable expression and you have probably captured its personality exactly.

Being a self-taught artist, you set a very fine example of how anything can be achieved if only we try. I love your encouraging words and I appreciate you for spreading the message.

Thank you for sharing your drawing tips and technique, because someone will try what you are doing and you may have just changed their life forever! We each need to discover what works best for our style and it's lovely that you are willing to share all you know to help us along. Thanks Sheri!

I own three Pomeranians. (They are one of the reasons I wanted to learn to draw)

This was my first attempt last year. I used 2b,hb,4h and 9b on Bristol smooth.

Hi Cindy
Awww, what a cutie! This is very good for your first try, you must have been pleased with the result. I like the way you have used the darker pencil where needed.

Sam, our lovable lab. I loved drawing this one. I used my HB, 2H, 2B, 8B, 6H, a tortillon to blend and eraser. I got a little carried away with his hair because it was so much fun! (his is not quite that long.)



artist
Note from Kerry:

Ellen, I absolutely love this one. Most artists struggle with eyes but you have done Sam's eyes perfectly. It's that expression that can melt even the most hardened of hearts.
I hope you keep sharing your drawings, you are an artist in the making and I'd love to watch your progress!

If this is the type of work you can produce when you have just started, wow, I can't wait to see what you will achieve in just one year!

These dogs belong to my stepdaughter.

This drawing was done with 2h,4h,hb,2b,4b.

I love drawing animals. Have only been drawing for about a year after taking a few classes. I still feel like I need a lot of practice. My husband tells me I am too hard on myself! LOL

I am still having problems with sketching. Too much of a perfectionist I guess!


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Cindy
Yes, we are our own worst critics. I think it helps us to strive and improve though. You've done a lovely job with this drawing.

I don't really like pugs but I wanted to try a dog with wrinkles, and I found this picture online and thought it was kinda cute.

I finished this one in about five hours. I used b, and 6b pencils mostly.


***Note from Kerry:
Leah
You've done a terrific job of the Pug! Good on you. Keep drawing because your work is a real pleasure to view.
