A quick sketch in ink pen, with washes of watercolour. Inspired by a vase of Lilies on the dining table. Enjoy your day!
The third and final - at least for now - in this series of Australian native wildlife drawings. I used the graphite pencil again on the “Reeves” 300gsm medium tooth, watercolour paper. And also applied freehand art app media in the Procreate app, to create a pastel looking finish. *Below is a video of the... Continue Reading →

Then dabbed freehand with my finger, some art app media, in the Procreate app. This is Bob, one of our dogs - Jack Russels - sitting on the couch. Probably hoping to hear those favourite words, “want to go for a walk”. Below is our... Continue Reading →
