Chameleons are another creature l have a very soft spot for. This is my second chameleon drawing.
This hummingbird l dont have a positive identification for. l think it might be a Calliope? lf anyone can positively id it for me l would be so grateful to hear from you. This was another photo from the amazing StephenJayPhotography. You can find him over on Facebook, his link is in the post below.
The Turaco was a completely new bird to me and l am so excited to have found it, l certainly have more on my to do list!
Robin in Snow
Robin in the snow. It was really fun to draw snow. Something l have never done before. This Robin was drawn on grey paper as l really wanted to capture the wintery feel.
Purple Winged Grasshopper
Purple Winged Grasshopper. I really had fun with the textures on this piece. There is a tutorial on drawing the wings on my tips page.
Sugar Glider on Watermelon
Sugar Glider on a water melon drawn as always using colored pencils. I couldn't resist drawing this beautiful little Sugar Glider with those huge eyes and of course the lovely pop of colour from the vibrant water melon.
Panther Chameleon displaying his night time colors drawn using colored pencils.
Kitten through paper
A very cute kitten peeping put through a torn piece of paper. You will find a step by step guide to drawing cat fur on the tips page of my website. This piece is available to purchase.
Red Eyed Tree Frog
My first Red Eyed Tree Fog.
Lion Fish. I first drew this exact same photo just over a year ago. I will do a blog post so you can see that drawing all day really does help you to improve!
Sleepy Chipmunk on Walnuts
Hummingbird on Lantana
Hummingbird on Lantana. This tufted coquette hummingbird (Lorphornis Ornatus), had such stunning colors l was just itching to get my pencils out and draw! I have wanted to draw a hummingbird for a long time but have never found quite the right reference photo, but then l found this one and what a gorgeous little bird it is.
The Kitten. Having drawn several cats, but never a kitten l thought that the time had come and when l saw those gorgeous big grey, blue eyes l knew l had to draw them, and it was such a pleasure to draw. I love drawing eyes and just wanted to capture all the expression in this little kittens face, even though it does make me feel a teeny bit sad!
Painted Lady Butterfly
The Snow Leopard
The Snow Leopard. I have wanted to draw a Snow Leopard for quite a while now. I love wildlife art and drawing wildlife of all kinds, and big cats are just beautiful. I fell instantly in love with this gorgeous leopard cub on first sight. He is only young, but seems to have had quite a life. The top of one ear appears to be missing and he has a big scar on his nose. And that look in his eyes! This was such an exciting piece to draw.
