Crested Duck painting

We have 6 ducks and yesterday I decided to paint our crested drake.

We’ve only recently got this pair and haven’t even named them yet, but he’s already been painted. I’ve been organised and already uploaded the speed paint video for this and prints are available at Fine art America  and Society6. I’ll get round to uploading my Peacock painting on there shortly. Those that follow me on instagram will have seen that painting.

He was painted using winsor and newton gouache, I’m becoming quite a fan on this stuff and was completed on A4 Daler Rowney mixed media paper. I like how this paper handles things pretty well without warping too much. It’s also the paper that I’m using for my inktober pictures and it’s really nice not having to worry about the ink bleeding through into the page below.

 

Drawing and procrastinating…

I’ve not had much time or patience for art work lately,  changing jobs, being out in the garden being practical. As well as most importantly making a fuss of our new Chickens.

However as the weather gets less hospitable and there’s less to do, I’m slowly getting back to the artwork.  I did get about half way through Inktober,  evidence of which can be seen on my facebook page.

I’ve also been meaning to update this site, or maybe create a better website, hopefully I’ll get round to that at some point.

As for now though, I’m very happy with myself, as yesterday I completed the picture below.

Happy Frogs

froggy line art betterfroggy with colour

Just a random little happy frog doodle.  Coloured in using a mix of Letraset Promarkers and a grey and a pink copic marker (Cool Grey No. 3 and R02 to be specific) .

This was just a fun little thing to doodle, I first drew it out in my sketchbook and then found that the markers don’t look so good on that, so copied it onto some marker paper and coloured it in there.

I’m currently working on doodling some hedgehogs, so hopefully some of that will make it’s way onto here soon 🙂
