Whimsical Animals

Good morning lovely and creative ones, Tracy here with a quickie post from me today.....

For a long time I have looked at all those cute critters appearing in everyone's art journals and said to myself 'I want to do that'
I have never been the best at drawing and learn more from watching than trying to figure it out myself but have found lately that I am more able to look at things and break them down into basic shapes therefore making it easier to create things I never thought I could....

Using the fabulous Dylusions and Dina Wakley paints I created my background and sketched my bear on top, just basic shapes, circle for the head, semi circles for the ears, eyes and nose. 

I used the golden paints in ochre and umber paints mixed with white to paint my bear adding my shading and highlights as I went along. 

I love creating my whimsy animals, I just can't stop. Look what else I have been creating....,

Aaaah my lovely little bunny !!!

And my happy little hippopotamus!!!!!

The possibilities are endless

Show me what you can create!!

Bright and painty hugs
