For a little family birthday fun, here is an animation of a cat, a bird, and a squirrel.
See the Happy Birthday Cat with Goldfish animation. (I hope it works- I never know if these things turn out right, it may not show in all browsers.)
Happy Thanksgiving! Have fun with my Holiday Feast Cats Coloring Page.
Last week in the watercolor class I teach we painted deer. Here is the lesson on drawing and painting deer. For reference material you can use photos of deer. A good source is the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Digital Library System. We used silhouettes from a very old library book, and drawings from a favorite of mine, Ken Hultgren's The Art of Animal Drawing, a wonderful Dover Publication. At USWFS I found wonderful pen and ink drawings of deer, by Bob Hines. Have fun practicing.
This watercolor of whitetail deer I started last year when we did this lesson. I did a few more touches on it this year.
Here is a step-by-step lesson on drawing some cats looking at Halloween pumpkins.
