Maggie – A Very Cute Cat 😊

Category: Animal Art, Portraits  Comments off

This is Maggie 😊 Such a cutie! 😻 I sketched her using a Twisbi Eco Fountain Pen and black De Atrimentas ink and the Watercolour was from the Pentel Aquash Travel Set. A white gel pen was used for some highlights. The paper is really good to work with – Fabriano Artistico Watercolour paper, Hot Pressed – it is lovely and smooth in Traditional White (so it’s not that really bright white) and, even better, it states it is free of animal components! 😊

Another Adorable Donkey 😊

Still keeping with the β€˜Donkeys’ theme, I fell in love with this little guy!Β  An adorable miniature donkey named β€˜Donk’, he belongs to a real animal loving family 😊 and amongst other pets, they have a gorgeous clydesdale as well as a little miniature pony, beautiful enormous Mastiffs, plus a little Bulldog!

Once again with this sketch, I used my favourite Black DeAtrimentas ink with my TWISBI fountain pen and watercolours, which were from a Pentel Aquash Travel Set, in a Stillman and Byrne Epsilon journal, sized at A5.

Cute Donkeys in Ink

Category: Animal Art, Sketchbook  Comments off

I love little donkeys, they are so cute! I did this using my TWISBI fountain pen with black DeAtramentis ink, and then coloured using Copic marker pens and a white gel pen. It is in my A4 size Stillman and Birn Zeta Series sketchbook…
It did take longer than my usual done in one sitting sort of sketch… I drew it roughly in pencil first, then did the black ink with the fountain pen, which took a couple of sittings, and then finally did the colouring (which also took a couple of sittings) … I usually only get a chance to do this sort of thing at night, and not for great amounts of time, so it does take a few attempts over a few days on a larger more involved one…
