    No, they are not mine, but we have 2 cats.

    Good sketch, your Niece will love it.
    The one with the elephant is also really good.

    Thank you Pira. That means a lot coming from you. I had a lot of fun with that sketch - Sydney Harbour is gorgeous.

    One of my on going photography series: Floral Inks ~ where I match an ink a blossom or seedpod of sometype. I want the effect to be that ink is seemingly sourced from nature.

    This was today's effort ~ Platinum Pigmented - Rose Red with a pink tulip.
    That's beautiful! I have some of the Kyo-iro FP inks from Japan and they are made from natural dyes. Your photo made me think of them :-)

    Great sketch Pira. Do you use photos or other forms of reference? I struggle with form and scale when I sketch if I don't have a reference point.

    A 10 minute water colour sketch, with black pigment ink details. I'm trying to loosen up and not get too tight or concerned with being too accurate, so I'm trying the technique of setting a maximum time limit.

    This was using a photo reference and yes, the sunset really was that colourful!

    Thank-you Migo. To answer your question ....yes...it's what artists do. That is why they have models...even the most famous ones make/made sketches from life (or photographs they had models pose for) and then used those to patchwork their final compostition. It's all about observation...and then I try to get things right with my composition for a drawing. I'm always learning things and hopefully improving in my ability to translate it to paper. It's not like I'm sitting in a medival monestary illuminating manuscripts with pictures of wild beasts, but being forced to draw creatures based on the vague descriptions of ancient travellers. I have the internet and mountains of books, and put them to use. Not as good a use as I should...but I do try.

    Love that sunset. Good work. You really captured the awe inspiring glow when nature takes our breath away. I like the reflection on the water. Doing loose sketches is my bane; it's so utterly difficult. People don't realize how much work goes into being able to translate a mood and scene in such a manner that it looks like just a couple of simple lines and utterly effortless. It's not. It has taken time to develop the skill to be able to translate what you see like that to paper. I am very proud of the onion I drew for the weekly sketch because I DID draw that loosely....at least it was for me...a quick sketch/drawing (maybe 20 minutes). Point is...each sketch is a step closer to whatever goal you set yourself.

    Pira, you said "Bird of Prey".

    As English is not my first language, the first thing I´m thinking when I hear "Bird of Prey" is something like that:

    Klingon Bird of Prey



    (Procreate, Apple Pencil, iPadPro)


    This damn thing took me much much longer than expected, especially the coloration.

    Well I think the Klingons named their battle cruisers well ~ and I think it was well worth the time & effort you spent on drawing it.

    Yes - I make notecards with my drawings, or I just tuck a quick sketch, doodle or watercolour into my letter. I also have fun decorating my Tomoegawa writing paper. I mean, it's great paper isn't it, but a bit plain by itself?

    I try to make it relevant to the recipient, if I can. None of my stuff (I wouldn't call it "artwork") is very good, & I used to be self-conscious about sending it, but something personal like that, that took a little time to do, seems always to be greatly appreciated by the recipient.

    That is a nice touch to include with a letter.

    It doesn't matter what the skill level is when something is created with love and the gift of time
