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.

G Is For Using The Grid Method To Draw

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. You can draw most any object on a grid, and this is a simple drawing technique for people who are overwhelmed with starting a new sketch.  The pictures below link to my old website, but the current one is the main url sweetbeariesart.com, and this one.

Scanned Version of My Cat Drawing
Here is what the scanned version of my drawing of Maxx looked like once I completed shading it in with markers.

 


I used my trusty flexi ruler to create a graph on the paper.  Next, I used my reference photograph as a guide for where to draw each part of Maxx on the grid paper.

 

Coloring My Drawing of Maxx
I used markers to color in Maxx, and to cover up the grid marks.

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. I truly hope you enjoy this craft idea because any object can be attached to a pop-up card. Perhaps this will give you a bit of inspiration for making your own Easter cards.

What is your favorite type of holiday to make cards for? I have found over the years I love making Easter cards because spring is a season of renewal, and it makes me feel invigorated.
