Owl

Taking a cue from Charlie O’Shields of Doodlewash.com new nature sketching stuff activity book I did this owl. There are a lot of sketching and watercolor painting tips, ideas and activities in his book. It is good for any age young and even oldish like me. If you are an experienced artist or want to give art a chance for the first time, give this book a try. Charlie is right we were all born with the ability to draw, color and create art. Owl created by me, artist Susan Feniak. Watercolor and ink on Strathmore card stock.

Contemplation

Contemplation. If you don’t know me or my art you won’t know I rarely paint people. In fact I can’t remember the last time I tackled a selfie let lone another person. In my world that makes this painting special. The sunset adds to the contemplative moment I tried to capture here. Artist Susan Feniak. Koi watercolour on 8″×10″ Fabriano paper.

Hanging Around

Hanging Around is more about reflections and the Blue Heron then anything else. A busy weekend working on assorted projects aboard our boat but I still managed to sneak in art time. Thankful for a thoughtful husband who let’s me be me. Which is hang around messing about with my watercolors, brushes and papers. Hope you had a lovely weekend too.


“Curly Sheep”

Curly in more ways then one! It’s hard to find the ears on these two.

“Where Old Boats Go”

Where do old boats really go? There are a few derelicts in every marina I am sure. Actually rather sad to see. Artist Susan Feniak. Watercolor and ink on paper.


Kingfisher

“Kingfisher” Artist Susan Feniak. Watercolor and ink on paper. I was happy to spot a pair of Kingfishers near our boat this weekend. They were busily doing what they do best, fishing. They sit and watch the water then of a sudden will dive beak first into the water. Usually loners like our neighborhood heron a pair seemed like a bonus. Next I will have to attempt painting the local raptor an Osprey.


Princess

More fun with my watercolor and ink. I still love sea turtles. Or as I refer to them tortugas. Princess is only a name I gave this one. Artist Susan Feniak. Koi watercolor white gelly roll and pigma micron ink. A reminder perhaps the worlds sea turtle population is in trouble.

Pugsy Artist Susan Feniak. Watercolor and ink on paper. Playing around with koi watercolor Gelly Roll white and Pigma Micron pens. Pugsy the painting is available at Gallery One Fifty in Sicamous. SOLD ☺
