Here’s Tree two… drawn in Procreate
Because I’m super busy with wholesale orders for shops and illustration work for publishers AND I’m in the process of moving home, it seemed like a great time to start a drawing challenge.
I’ve decided to try and draw 100 Trees… I’ve always liked trees, a good portion of my childhood was spent climbing around in them and I also have fond memories of drawing them in the sub-tropical gardens whilst at Falmouth University.
Here’s Tree 001 - drawn in Procreate (where else?)
You can buy a print of it here.
I’ve found the time over the last few days to draw some new prints (In Procreate of course). These are also forming the first three entries in the #100dayproject
Here they are:
First, Surfers & Swimmers
Then, Big Whale Surfers
And lastly, Whale Shark
All of these are available on my shop.
Here’s a Tree Sparrow on their way to work in the morning
Here’s a Northern Flicker, not particularly happy with it so I tried to camouflage it with a jazzy background.
Here’s an Eastern Bluebird, drawn in Procreate.
Day 17 is a Cedar Waxwing, possibly my favourite one so far.
Here’s Day 16 of the 20 Winter Birds Challenge- a Brown Creeper. I tried to continue with the Charley Harper-esque vibe from the previous one, but hopefully with some more subtlety.
Tried for something completely different and much simpler, so naturally it took me far longer than usual......
A house sparrow. We see a lot of these guys in our garden. Because I’m a rebel I painted him in some of the wrong colours 🤙 🤷🏼♂️ Drawn in Procreate of course.
A song thrush, due to being ill it’s taken me six days to do this one, trying to fit it in between other deadlines and sitting on the sofa feeling rotten.
I quite like it after all that though. Drawn in Procreate , very slowly.
Here’s a Junco, I’d never heard of this bird before but I like it. This one has a bit more artistic license than some but I’m quite pleased with how it turned out.
Here’s a Downy Woodpecker for Day 11
Here’s a Red Bellied Woodpecker for Day 10 of the Challenge.
Here’s a Carolina Wren for Day 9 of Stephanie Fizer-Coleman’s 20 Winter Birds Daily Drawing Challenge.
Here’s Day 8, a House Finch. This one came together quite quickly tonight.
Here’s a Blue Jay, drawn in Procreate. Didn’t have much time to spend on this one as I’m working on several different projects at the moment.
Here’s a Blue Mockingbird, really enjoyed painting this one, I feel like I’ve got into this Challenge now.
Here’s my latest 20 Winter Birds illustration, a Nuthatch.
