I’m a retired teacher who got back into art recently, doing pet portraits and expanding my horizons with watercolor and ink …still learning and trying to create new pieces regularly
I specialize in animals, colored pencil, drawing, landscapes, pen and ink, pencil drawing, watercolor.

Ébred a világ. Zöld illatok suhannak a határokon által, hozván a tavasz ígéretét. Parányi szálak búnak elő a barázdákból. Kifeslenek az ágak végin a szűz rügyek. Zsenge füvek parádéja lepi a mezőket. Dombok oldalán virul a galagonya. A telet általvészelt diófák szarvas koronája még kopár. Az új leveleket fakasztó hajtások vágyakozón kavarják az égi vizeket.

I've been working on this since mid September. This is my first attempt at using an engraver to help with the fur texture.

I’m often asked about my Bic pen drawings and how I do them. It starts with a good foundational drawing, the ballpoint pen part is just trying to colour within the lines. I try to do my best to explain the process, but the best way to show my progress is by posting my efforts to master pen drawings over the span of 3 or so years. I have been doodling/drawing with ballpoint pens as far back as I can remember - they were cheap, readily available and always lying around the house. It wasn’t until I was bored during a particularly long team meeting conference call (around 2016-17) that I started to think about the possibilities of ballpoint pens as serious illustration tools. My first experiments with full colour ink portrait drawings were rather crude, but that’s the point of learning new techniques—as long as the curiosity and the love to draw is there, you can transfer that into any medium. Remember, the most exquisite drawings/paintings you see didn’t materialise fully formed, they started out as failed experiments. Failure after failure after failure. It’s important to remember this when you get discouraged. The only difference between the accomplished artist and the beginner is hundreds of hours of practice. Talent can only get you so far. It’s the hard work behind the scenes that makes it all look effortless. Keep doodling. Keep learning. Stay curious.

A fun drawing to do. I usually do a lot of crosshatching, but for this one I went for the smoothness, better to capture the light, I suppose, where crosshatching can be a little distracting. Or look like hair! As some have said.
