Here is the finished colored pencil drawing of my dog Natasha. I love how the dark blue patches on Natasha’s fur coat ended up blending in with the mountains in the background. Drawing picture for your own wall can be a very rewarding and enriching experience.
Today the letter G is for using the grid method to draw. Back in 2011 I used the grid method to illustrate how simple it is to draw a picture of your own cat.

Do you like Easter and making cards rather than just buying one at the store? If so, you can watch the video that I made for my hub on how to make an Easter pop up card.
