Lioness WIP 7

Arches 300 gsm smooth paper   43 x 35cm


I should have this finished over the next couple of days.   When it's finished I will miss seeing her face. LOL I get so attached to my animal drawing... It's like getting to know them and making friends while drawing them. I don't know about adding the touch of color to this one.  There is the green grass but I am not sure.I need to think about it.

The fur is amazing, Dors. I'll be watching to see what you decide to do. It's always interesting to see the choices other artists make.

Dors said...

Thank you Barbara. I think I will wait until it's finished and then decide if to add a touch of color.

It's looking super, Dors. Know what you mean about missing them when you finish with the drawing/painting, you do get attached, don't you?

Can't wait to see you in August!

Your lioness looks great. I love the grass, it really adds that touch of realism. I have been putting touches of colour on my birds that I do in graphite and it really seems to bring them to life. Looking forward to seeing your next project.

Dors said...

Thanks Wendy. glad you are giving the touch of color a go with graphite. :D

Hi Dors! Beautiful drawing! Thought I would stop by and see what you've been up to as its been a busy school year for me. Sounds like you have plans for a nice trip! Sounds like you will be skipping over my part of the country!
