a couple of non-horse drawings

These are my most recently completed drawings that I plan to put on exhibit at our local fair that's coming up the end of Sept. (I think we need a non-horse art forum. )

I drew this from a photo of one of our spring ducklings:

Very very nice!!! I love the detail and the shading...especially on the duck. How did you have the patience to draw the straw that it's sitting on though?

Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!

BTW....That's NOT rain on your windshield!!!!

Thanks Charlicata! The straw was definitely a challenge and took forever. Honestly, I posted WIP (work in progress) photos on an art forum I belong to and the members there kept me going. Really, if it hadn't been for them I may have abandoned it and I'm glad I stuck it out. It was a nice lesson for me. :)

I love the duck & the detail you put into the straw ;) i tend to lose my patience with little things like that (even though they make it look alot better when it's finished!). One of the reasons i put a hold on drawing to paint lol

Thank you for the kind words everyone!

I usually do, too! Most of my drawings just have a shadow under them to keep them from looking like they're floating in the air, but I'm making myself go outside my comfort zone. :)

I second that request
