Re: April Monthly Challenge - Come Join The Fun

Had the chance to draw a couple of these great images the other day. I decided to break out the markers and add some color for a change. Had fun, and here's the result. Both are perhaps about 6x7 inches, drawn with Staedtler markers in many different colors. C&C welcome.

I'm not thrilled with the blue/black band of solid color at the bottom of this one, but it was a just-for-fun sketch anyway.


The sheep was a lot of fun! In addition to the markers, I also used the Superfine Faber-Castell Pitt Pen for some texture.

Re: April Monthly Challenge - Come Join The Fun

Jenna: Super work on both

I like your colors in the Blue Heron scene ... very nice ... your execution, as usual, is excellent -

Really wonderful drawing of the sheep -

Re: April Monthly Challenge - Come Join The Fun

Jenna, great work with markers. So hard for me since they don't blend. I got some watercolor markers so I can blend them but they need practice to make them work that way. First mark seems just like the alcohol markers. Anyway, I like the color and blending on the sunset and the sheep is so lively and well done. Applause.

Re: April Monthly Challenge - Come Join The Fun

A color filled scene with the birds and your sheep is fun and I love both! Markers are easy to use but don't blend as Jo said.

Re: April Monthly Challenge - Come Join The Fun

Well, since my birth month is the "Wolf Moon" ( January ), I decided to attempt a painting reflecting that lunar event - As you can see, I borrowed a couple of ideas from two of the photographs and stirred in a couple of thoughts on the subject -

I do not know about my Wolf ... first one I have ever attempted ... struggled with it ... but enjoyed the exercise -

The painting is oil on Masonite, 9 x 12; I used a very limited palette ... only three pigments ( Ultramarine Blue, Transparent Mummy, Raw Umber ) and Cremnitz -

All comments and suggestions most welcome -


Hud

Re: April Monthly Challenge - Come Join The Fun

Hud that is gorgeous. Love your thoughts and idea. I paint on the smooth side of masonite with a gesso under painting. This looks neat, like canvas. Old way to say it, "You done good."

Re: April Monthly Challenge - Come Join The Fun

Jo: Thank you very much ... glad you think I "done good" - Like I say, I am not to sure about that Wolf ... could use a more talented hand I think -

I need to try painting on the smooth side of Masonite ... the dimpled side is a rough go at times -

Appreciate your comments -

Hud

Re: April Monthly Challenge - Come Join The Fun

January is my birth month too! I didn't know that Hud so thanks for the info. Your wolf is splendid! He's ready for a night of hunting and prowling. Very good!

Re: April Monthly Challenge - Come Join The Fun

Thank you all so much for the great comments!

Hud, this wolf painting is beautiful! Very fitting for your January birthday. It has such wonderful mood and atmosphere with that big moon and the clouds, as well as the snowy ground. You've created an excellent painting!
