Penguins at Play

 Drawing practice using the book '20 Ways to Draw a Cat and 44 other awesome animals' by Julia Kuo for ideas. I then used a few of the penguins to add to the photo taken at Low Force, Tees Valley.

Birds and Mushroom Sketch

This is an ink drawing I did recently in one of my larger sketchbooks [16"x 11"]

I altered the threshold in photoshop on the picture above to make the lines a bit clearer.





I'm joining in with Paint Party Friday

Elliot's Monster Toy

This is Elliot's monster with spiky bits on the ears and three legs. I made him from calico, the orange lines are heat transfer vinyl. I machine stitched around the edges. So it wouldn't fray I painted the edges with PVA and also painted the legs and ears to make them stiff. Then stuffed him.

Below is Elliot's original drawing, I tidied it up a little and cut it from vinyl on a digital cutter
I did have a go at altering it even more but I like the cuteness of the original drawing so decided to do the toy from that.


He also had a go at writing his name so I put that on the back with the date.
I'm probably a biased Grandma but I think he does very good drawings for a three year old [just 3 in December]

Others pictures, this one is his dad
This one is a self portrait with belly button
And this one is of me, his Grandad and his mum
