Ingrid the Owl – The process of drawing her and she’s a newly listed print on Etsy

owl art, wall decor, jessica doyle , baby shower gift, limited edition print,

I drew Ingrid using Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens and Prismacolor Verithin Coloured Pencils inside a handbound leather journal. The original drawing measures 9 by 9 inches and the final limited edition print measures 8.5 by 11 inches. This size print is easy to mat and frame and hang on your wall. A pre-cut 11 by 14 inch mat with an opening cut for an 8 by 10 inch will fit this print perfectly. Then just slip it into your favourite 11 by 14 inch picture frame.

I began by drawing Ingrid using Faber Castell Pitt Artist pens. I use all their nib sizes when drawing. After the ink work is completed I begin adding the coloured pencil.

Adding in more coloured pencil to achieve some depth and highlights. I really enjoy using Prismacolor Verithin coloured pencils over any other Prismacolor or other brand because the lead stay sharp and are extra hard allowing you to shade those tiny places without the worry of your lead softening or breaking for that matter.

Saying thank you to my internet art supply and book angels

pencil crayons, coloured pencils

Today, to my surprise I received a delightful box from Charles Smith in the mail. A few months ago he had written to ask if there were any art supplies that I needed as he was traveling to Japan where art supplies are cheap and plentiful as opposed to here in Eastern Canada.

After numerous emails from Charles I finally conceded and I wrote back and asked if he’d pick me up a few Pilot Choose Pens in white as my one lone one had all but run out. Well, I opened the box and there were five pens, two boxes of Prismacolor 36 pack Verithin coloured pencils and one box of Prismacolor 12 pack Watercolor pencil crayons. OMG. I was in tears. My pencil crayons were running out fast so this colourful box of goodies has really brightened my day. Continue reading

I couldn’t bare to throw out all the wallpaper we took off the walls. Much of it came off in large sheets; big enough to draw upon. I rolled it up, bagged it and saved it. The bottom most layer of wallpaper dates back to Circa 1920.
