Bobcat Drawing

Hi Everyone!
Bengal Tiger animation
Here we are entering the holidays already! It doesn’t seem possible how quickly this year has gone by. We have been so busy with our coloring books, visiting family and friends, raking leaves and keeping our fireplace going with the cold weather.

Well, I have finished the last big cat of my large cat drawings, seven total, plus the tiger on the cover of my first coloring book, Wild Things of the World. I am working towards creating a coffee table book that will be a collection of a lot of my colored pencil drawings over the years. It will also have some progressing samples of drawings to give you an idea of some of my techniques for drawing that may be useful to other artists. Here is the drawing of a bobcat in progression.

I am putting these large cat drawings on my Redbubble merchandise where you can enjoy them on clothing, home decor, framing and matting and other items.  Just click on the Merchandise bubble on our website homepage to reach my storefront.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season this year and a blessed year in 2023.

Stay Warm!

Bengal Tiger Drawing

Hello, Hello, Hello . . .

Bengal Tiger animationI just submitted my Wild Things for Kids, a coloring and activity book for kids from ages 8 to 100, for publication this evening. There are 120 pages full of coloring and activities. It is in for review and should be up on Amazon within the next 72 hours!  I am so excited and hope you will check it out.

I have started on number three “Big Cat” drawing and am showing you my progress over the past several weeks. It is a little different in perspective as he is not staring at you! This Bengal Tiger is really starting to come to life and I think will be a great addition to the other drawings.

Fall is coming up next week. It has been a hot summer and I am looking forward to the cooler weather. More time for drawing!

Blessings,

Final Jaguar Drawing and Hawaii Trip

Hello All!

Jaguar final imageHere is the final Jaguar drawing. He was a real challenge but I kept working on him even when I thought I was done at one point. One of the skill improvements in drawing is pushing yourself past your comfort zone and then realizing how much better your drawing can actually turn out.

I am still working with our publisher on my children’s coloring and activity book. Since it is 120 pages (!!) big, about double my other two coloring books, it is taking a little more time to finalize everything before publication. Looking at a couple of weeks before going public.

My husband and business partner, Mark, and I just spent 10 days in Kona, Hawaii. It was our first time visiting Hawaii. We stayed with a couple who are High School friends who moved there three years ago. What a stunning Island! They took us all over the island and I took lots of pictures adding them to my resources for future drawings. Going in August was facing 85 degrees heat and 85+ humidity. I do love the Pacific Northwest’s weather!!  Aloha.

Jaguar Drawing in Progress

Welcome all of you Big Cat Lovers.

Leopard drawing progressI am now working on to my second large cat drawing, a beautiful Jaguar. When it is completed I will add him to our Redbubble store. This is a fascinating challenge drawing six large cats in order to improve my skills as an artist.  As each drawing progresses I experience a feeling as if we are facing each other in real life. It can be a little bit unsettling looking into the eyes of these beauties as they stare back at you!

This is the reason I love drawing, when you can “get inside” of your drawing and create something that moves you in some way. I hope those who see my artwork can experience something that moves in them.

Must get back to drawing  . . . !

Blessings, Terrie D
