I've sent this postcard to the TAE19 call for artists to help raise funds for art in healthcare.
[Funds raised by TAE19 will enable Art in Healthcare to develop and extend their workshop programme to benefit more people within the healthcare system. All Art In Healthcare’s workshops bring the power of creativity to people in times of need whether in a hospital, care home, community health centre, hospice or any other health care setting. http://twitterartexhibit.org/call-for-artists/] Submission deadlines are not until the 29th April so you could send a postcard too if you liked.
I chose to draw a pangolin because they are the most traffiked mammals in the world. I'd recently seen a TV program about them which I found fascinating.
My first attempt to draw one was on the computer, which I then digitally painted.
I wanted something a little different so did an ink drawing of it and painted it with bright watercolours. I liked this version but I thought the painting was very messy. I'd used bristol board which is good for drawing on but not so good for painting. So I drew another one and made patterns in ink as shown at the top of the page.
