An Old One but Worth It

It’s paint a bird day a.k.a. draw a bird day. Sooo I decided to post an old one of mine. We saw this stunning Macaw while in Antigua several years ago. Of course I had to do its portrait. Hope you have enjoyed your paint a bird day and are staying warm and dry. Cheers Susan Feniak

Draw a bird day August

August 8th and it’s draw a bird day. Why not give you two birds? The peacock is inspired from Charlie O’Shields Sketching Stuff Activity Book, Nature. I am enjoying that book. Thank you Charlie.


“Hello There!”

Hello There! I am volunteering at Gallery One Fifty in Sicamous for the next two days. I have busy creating in between visitors. I hope these two make you smile.

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.

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.


#NatureDoodlewash Otter

June 30th 2016  This is the final day of the month and for #NatureDoodlewash.  Today I have gone back to the beach for a walk.  I look out onto the water and there I see an Otter!  He is having a lot of fun frolicking in the waves.  Have you ever been entertained by an Otter?  It is a joyful experience.

#NatureDoodlewash  Otter Original art by Susan Feniak using  Holdbein Artists’ Water Colors on Canson Mix Media 7″ x 10″ paper. I had a new toy to play with today, Faber Castel Pitt artist pen, black.  I have four sizes.

Once again I would like to thank Charlie O’Shields at doodlewash.wordpress.com for his imagination and inspiration creating the doodlewash a day forum.  Next month, July, Charlie has welcomed us all to join in on his #WorldWatercolorMonth.  There are many joining in on the fun and I hope you can too.  You can find more information on Charlie’s blog, Facebook or Instagram.  Or doodlewash.comIMG_20160630_135913


#NatureDoodlewash Cute and Fuzzy

June 28th  Since we are still in Scotland we will go for a nature walk in the Highlands today.  Here we will come across the most common of sights, sheep.  They are everywhere, its their grass, their hills and even their road.  These two were only slightly curious of our approach so apparently people are common here too.
