Still Life

Still life is one of the easiest things to draw or paint.  What is still life?  It is a picture consisting of inatimate objects, such as flowers or fruit. All you have to do is draw a bouquet of flowers or a bowl of strawberries that are sitting on your table. Use your own imagination as well! Just remember, if you are going to paint, make sure that you sketch out your drawing first. I decided to display my painting of an eggplant, bell pepper, and tomatos.

Artsy Animals

For todays post, I'll talk about drawing animals. Our four legged friends seem to be a fairly popular thing to draw. There are various how to books on drawing horses, dogs, cats, and even sea animals! 
I like to use pets as models, as well as pictures on the internet, books, and my own ideas.  I'll give you a couple samples of my animal art.  Directly below is a drawing of a pug and chihuahua.

Below is my drawing of a horse.
