My friend, Isaac, submitted this pet photo, which gave me a challenge with German Shepherd form and fur!
Inktober 2021 Day 19 – Loop
My very first thought when I saw this prompt was how I have played a certain set of cds on loop for the past year to comfort me and keep my spirits up thru all the losses around me.
I originally thought of drawing the stack of cds, but I was following one of my favorite singers/songwriters and she kept posting photos of her new puppy. I just had to! Wouldn’t you?! Then I watercolored it.
The watercolor of this little girl was then sent to the singer who has blessed me so over this past year. A giving back for all her gift has given me. Share your gifts, they were given for the uplifting of each other.
Inktober 2021 Day 18 – Artist’s Choice
My friend’s Jenn’s cat. Such a cutey! I like her little “snaggle tooth” expression. I have one cat who does that.
Inktober Day 15 – Artist’s Choice
This one falls under things that give me joy – such as pets and painting a friend’s pet, hopefully giving them joy also. Share it about!
I think this is the first pittie I have ever drawn! They are not that easy.
Inktober 2021 – Day 10 Pick
We pick our pets, but sometimes they pick us.
This is Storm… my friend Chris picked her. Or did she pick Chris?
Things that make me happy.
Inktober 2021 – Day 8 Watch
This is my friend Sam’s tuxedo cat, Sadie – with the glorious whiskers!
I love a curious cat – you gotta keep an eye on those neighbors! This one allowed me the opportunity to practice whiskers and my white gel pen.
Things that bring me joy.
Inktober 2021 – Day 7
I went off prompt for this one. This is one of my “things that give me joy” – Phoebe – my friend, Todd’s, dog. I also water colored her.
Inktober 2021 – Day 3 Vessel
Our pets are vessels of love, joy, healing which they offer to us unconditionally. It only made sense that Toby would be among the first images for this month.
This is a pre-watercolor inked version with the process below. The watercolor is at the bottom. I have that picture sitting on the mantle where I will analyze it for the next week. <grin> Anyone else do that? I know I need to add his white whiskers, but I may want to work on some of the paint values and tweak them before it is finished.
