|"Garden Inspired" 12 x 16 pastel drawing.|
I take many photos while I am out taking care of my client's fur children. They make great reference photos for my drawings and their natural poses are genuine moods of the animals. This sweet girl was in a playful mood when I caught this pose. I knew it would be useful somewhere down the line. Once our tomatoes turned into a jungle of colors, I took photos of the garden and inspiration set in.
This drawing was so much fun, but took longer than I had hoped. Summer is a tough time for me to sit and draw as all those fur babies take up much of my time. I love every moment of it though and am grateful to be able to do what I enjoy.
One more week until Autumn, my favorite time of the year! As the colors change and the days grow shorter, I will continue to be out taking care of fur babies and finding inspiration for my art. They say to write what you know, but I think the same applies to art. 🎨🐈🍅😁 -Sandy
