We had to choose a final piece. Mike had samples sketched out already to practice the hair and the like. I decided to sketch a pic of 2 monarchs my daughter took yesterday. She raised them from eggs. Poor lighting here.

Next is drawing with negative space. You draw the blacks to expose the white. Slowly add black to push items down in space. I decided to expose a dark bramble home for a mouse. If you look closely you can see her.

The next few posts are from a three day workshop with Mike Sibley. The whole focus was drawing with graphite/pencil and working specifically on animal textures. It was my first art class. Loved it! Mike is one of the best in the world.

My tree frog drawing is finished. Check out the bit of whimsy I added, if you can find it. Drawing took just over 12 hours using Procreate and iPad Pro 10.5
