Hey everyone! I wanted to put this out yesterday (y’know on actual Mothers’ Day,) but Kathleen and I were on the road for about five hours and I ended up forgetting to post. I didn’t, however, forget to give my mom something for Mothers’ day and neither did Kath. I chose to do a drawing… Continue reading Happy Belated Mothers’ Day!
Hey everyone! I can’t believe it’s already May. Soon, school will be out and I’ll have all the free time I want to draw, paint, read, write, make videos, and play music. Before that blissful time comes however, there’s finals and projects and all the wrap up that comes with the end of the year.… Continue reading Impressionism vs. Realism
Hey everyone! I’ve been drawing my entire life. My parents have oodles of photocopies of my old drawings from when I was 5-10 years old. I came across an old drawing of mine from second grade and I decided to redraw it. Now, the drawing I chose was what I considered to be the best… Continue reading Redrawing an Old Piece of Art!
Hey everyone! Kathleen and I do a lot of art. That’s undeniable. We have our favorite styles, mediums, and things to create. (For me that’s realism, graphite pencils, and wolf drawings. For Kath, it’s realism, acrylic paint, and bird paintings.) I’ve been hesitant to make this post for a while because I just haven’t had any… Continue reading My Top 10 Favorite Art Supplies!
Hey everyone! So Kathleen and I have a pet. She hasn’t been on the blog at all, but she’s super sweet, super fluffy, and super… well… I don’t know how to say it. She’s kind of a ding-dong in the smarts department. Either way, we love her and thought we would share her with you.… Continue reading Drawing Bunny!
Hey everyone! After I finished doing all my research for last week’s post, I was going through my panoply of art supplies when I noticed a large tin of colored pencils. I got them for a project for school several months ago and haven’t picked them back up since. The colored pencils in question are… Continue reading My Best Wolf Drawing to Date! (+ My Thoughts on Prismacolors)
Hey everyone! So last week, I discussed Leonardo da Vinci’s work, Study of Horse he drew in 1482, which is one of my favorite pieces of his. I discussed the story of the sketch and how it wasn’t supposed to be just a sketch. In a nutshell, da Vinci wanted to make a huge bronze horse… Continue reading Sketching Horses~ Part 2
Hey everyone! So, the other day I was skimming through my Fine Arts course for school and came upon a pretty interesting character. He lived from the late fifteenth century to the beginning of the sixteenth century. He was a renowned inventor, mathematician, scientist and artist. He is thought to be one of the most… Continue reading Sketching Horses ~Part 1
Hey everyone! So last week I showed you my hand drawing, and since we’ve kind of deviated from facial studies, I thought I would show you that mouth study I was dreading. I got it done and turned in on time, so that’s really what I’m happy about. Since I have little to no experience… Continue reading Facial Study~ Part 3
Hey everyone! So I told you last week in my Facial Study~ Part 2 post that I had drawn a hand giving a thumbs up. And because looking at my mouth study makes me cringe, I’ll be showing you my hand drawing first! My art instructor specifically told us to draw looking directly at out… Continue reading Thumbs Up!
