Today’s post gets straight to the point, and the letter D is for drawing, or at least finishing up an old drawing that I left behind. This is a simple illustration with my cat Irina standing next to a large impressionistic flower. This drawing is a bit of a stretch because cats do not usually stand next to vases with flowers of this magnitude, but this illustration is meant to emulate the feelings cats have when standing next to a human.
I will continue adding color to this drawing as it progressing, so come back to see how it turns out.
Yes, I know this is blog post is being published in April, but keep in mind many of us wrote our A to Z blog posts in advance, and I just happened to compose this blog post during the month of March. It was quite liberating to work on the A to Z blog posts in any which letter order that struck my fancy, and I was excited to finally finish the Christmas tree illustration I had started back in December. It was a simple illustration and I have since lost the green marker I started it with, so I decided to finish this drawing with a different green marker and colored pencils to give the pine needles a bit of depth.
B is for brushstrokes because I enjoy painting, and this activity allows me to create artwork for the walls of my home. I am always fascinated with the types of brushstrokes each painting contains, and sometimes brushtrokes can even tell a story. Below are a few of my paintings, all of which contain various types of brushstrokes.
