"Call of the Wild", Mountain Lion

"Call of the Wild"


Hello All,

Well... I finally finished it. This piece was a bit out of my comfort zone. I typically don't do graphite but I thought I would give it a try. I thought I would do a small portrait to play with it a bit. It's kind of nice working a bit smaller, I usually work quite large.

Title: "Call of the Wild"
Medium: Graphite Pencil
Size: 12" x 9"

Thanks for looking and Keep Scribbling!

Portrait of a Cheetah



Today I finished a small piece of artwork, it's a portrait of a Cheetah. It was fun to create this little piece while practicing social distancing. 

I took the photo I used to create this, while I was in Botswana. The size is only 8" x  8", it's done with colored pencils on white pastelmat card and the title is "Don't Fence Me In".

If you have any questions or comments please don't hesitate.

Keep Scribbling,
Gemma

Young Elephant and Older Sibling WIP-06

Work in Progress with Colored Pencils

Hi All,

I'm FINALLY feeling better after about 2 weeks of a really bad flu/cold, it really had me down for the count. We stayed home for both Christmas and New Years because I was feeling so bad. But.... I'm doing great now.

I was able to get more done on the baby elephant. Most of the face is done and I'm now working on his/her ear. 

This is the third piece of my "Save the Elephants" series and I still have a few more in mind to do, in the series, in the near future. The reference photo I used to create this piece, I took while I was in Botswana in an underground hide, along side a watering hole (pond). I took thousands of photos while on that trip, it really was a wonderful experience.

The info on the piece is as follows:
Title: They Love, They Play, They Mourn - Save Them
