I’ve recently had a couple of watercolour commissions. One was a gift, the Robin, and then the lady liked it so much that she requested a matching goldfinch.
I thought, “oh I really must post before July ends” only to see a Hello August! post on my Instagram feed.
I’ve had a couple of days of not posting since Inktober, but I’ve continued to draw and paint in the meantime.
Here’s something I worked on a couple of weeks ago.
This is Pogy. He’s a Neardie rescue (meaning he’s sort of like a bearded collie, maybe?) Pogy is super friendly and loves cuddles. He once jumped out a secon d story window and now has a metal part in his leg, but he’s made a full recovery. My dad calls him Seargant Major Pogy because he’s got such a straight back like a meerkat.
He posed beaitfully for me to do a water colour base, and later I added some detail in pen over the top.
Ideally I’d be able to complete the whole study with him as my model, or at least a detailed photo, but that’s ok, it was useful practice. Next time I’d like to have another go with different coloured pens.
I hope you’re all enjoying the changing season and chilly air!
Inktober is complete!
Since I’ve (loosely) completed a nature themed inktober, I thought for “mask” we’d go with a green man vibe. It’d be fun to redo this with lots of detail including flowers, moths, and feathers. Maybe I’ll paint my own seasonal green man masks one day.
I’ve really enjoyed inktober and seeing everyone’s sketches. It’s motivated me to sketch and paint and helped me see where the time in the day is available for me to create. I’m gonna really try to keep the momentum and continue to produce more and more work.
Happy Halloween everyone!
