Paint Party Friday: Lots and lots of animals!

 Hello and welcome to Paint Party Friday!

Many of might know by now, that I love animals. I love to go to the zoo, into the woods and I also love to draw and paint them. So be prepared for lots of animals for this week.

First is the wild boar, I already showed you last week as a pencil sketch. Here he is in watercolor pencils.


The tawny owl. Not so sure about this one. She looks angry. *LOL*


I really like how the hare turned out. Eyes, colors, the color gradients.


And here's the squirrel. Not so happy, with how the pencils strokes are still showing after adding water. I might need to get a more high quality pencil set and try again with that. Or be more careful when adding the colors. Any tips here would be appreciated! :)


And when I thought I was finished with the woodland critters, DH said to me: a badger is missing! So this little guy joined us. Isn't he the cutest?


And here are all my woodland animals together, just in case you missed one. I hope to make all these into watercolor postcards on nice paper soon.


After woodland animal series is finished I'd love to do one with famr animals. Thought about going with "cute", but............I always think they look like children's drawings. Maybe cute isn't for me, although I love how the sheep turned out.


The first day thinking about farm animals wasn't a good one on the drawing board. Nothing worked. Then I came across pictures of my favorite sheep: Bluefaced Leicester/Border Leicester sheep. I simply love their HUGE noses and ears. This guy then showed up. Love him!


And right behind him was a pig of a breed native to my area, the so called "Schwäbisch-Hällisches Landschwein". Young one and so cute! Stay tuned for more farm animals!

  2. Lovely series, it is fun to see that how a spiral eventually turned into different animals. :)
    Happy PPF!

    1. Thanks! That's a fun way to look at it with the spiral. Like it! I added the spiral as a kind of design element, after I've seen it on the drawing of a Celtic hare.

  3. What a great idea to draw an animal out of the spiral. They're all so cute, I'm totally in love.
    The house pig is very nice.
    I wish you a nice weekend, Elke

    1. Thanks, Elke! But no, I didn't draw the animal from the spiral, but actually added it at the end of the drawing process, as a simple design element. Have a great weekend, too.

  5. Really great work with watercolor pencils! I’m just learning how to use them, it’s hard! I’d also think better quality pencils would help avoid lines, but also consider your paper quality. I love the spirals, could be your trademark! I especially like your fox, and owls always look a bit angry. Lol. Well done!

  9. These are so lonely and sweet! I love the spirals, which match the energy of Reiki, which I wrote about this week on my Creation Station blog!
