EDM #185 Draw a Cat, (its a litter)

My friend Judy's cat had look alike kittens, it hard to tell who was who in the kitty pile. Ballpoint pen on newsprint, I shoud redo it on better paper in pencil.

Horses, a hundred or so! Olympic inspired

I found a way to watch the olympic equestrian events online, the first time I was ever able to see as much of it as I wanted to. I find it thrilling. So began a huge herd of tiny pen horse sketches!   just counted the little sketches and that is about the number of horses I was taking care od at one time in the past!  Just to go through that size herd and look at and assess every pair of eyes, all eour legs, look at each one from head to toe and take care of all thier needs...... geeeze.... good thing I was young!

They evolved into these Winsor Newton ink painted horses, one elephant and one giraffe.

Quick gold sketches evolved into these:

Step 1, pick most defining lines from light pencil sketch draw with pilot gold marker

2 Add Shiva irridescent paintskik

3 Add gold colored pencil
