Today I painted a grevillea flower in watercolour paint.
I think one of my new year’s resolutions should be to get better at drawing possums. I want to be able to draw them so that they are recognizable as possums, even if I’ve made them a bit cartoony and so forth. Yesterday I painted a possum wearing Dame Edna glasses:
And I also sketch-painted some possums while I was waiting for it to dry.
So this is where I’m starting from.
I made some watercolour paintings from the drawing I did for the word skill and gave them to my niece.
But I took some photos first. I’m pretty happy with how they turned out.
(Any errors in the pose are most likely due to my drawing rather than her.)
This is a picture I did for the Illustration Friday topic ‘skill’. I thought of my niece @gemma_y_gow and her amazing skill in rhythmic gymnastics. I drew her from a video by @nely_bis_rhythmicgymnastics.
I’m just starting out my blog with some old Illustration Friday pictures. This is from when the topic was ‘wax’ a few weeks ago.
Aren’t bees amazing? Did you know that worker bees have different jobs depending on their age? They apparently make the best wax at around 16-18 days of age. I learned that here along with lots of other bee facts. 🙂 Foraging is the last job they do. The bees we see the most are old ladies.
