Drawing Declan

A how to on pain ting a portrait of a baby using any digital program or pretty much any medium….its not that different. I used maybe 4 or 5 brushes on this…sorry i cant share as they are ones I’ve got from other artists but there are plenty of  generic brushes you can use. I haven’t gone into a lot of detail on using tools in the program but if anyone’s interested I can certainly do a more in depth tutorial. Cheers – Lion Art Drawing Declan©LionArt-MichelleWebb

Melts my heart

Artists tend to paint whats happening in their life, whether it be a subject or an emotion…it invariably ends up showing in our work. This piece is the center of my life, my gorgeous little grandbub Declan…he lights up my life in a million different ways & I adore him along with my daughter like no others. ❤ I think my anatomy rehash is helping greatly & am really  happy with this piece. So watch this space as this little man will be featured in a few things I have coming up… ❤ Lion ArtDeclan 2

Always learning….

My belief is as an artist, i will be learning for the rest of my life….it never stops, theres always something another artist can offer you. I make time for study at least a few hours each week…at present im doing human anatomy, as this is an area i need to hone my skills. Below is a page from my notes, a bit messy i know but readable.. 😝 Sort of! The basics of drawing & painting are needed whatever medium you work in…..digital is no different. Form, light, shadows, perspective, colour harmony, lost & found edges……all elements needed for a good composition & tips ill be posting will include these things. The eye is the window to the soul, so a good place to begin…enjoy the tips below, basic but necessary. ❤️🦁🎨image

BMP Expo

I had a great day yesterday at BMP Expo, speaking to lots of people about my art including a couple of graphic designers that were fascinated how PS & Painter can be used to emulate traditional mediums. My families business Make Your Mark Australia (promo merchandise) was also exhibiting, & as part of a monthly promotion we had a competition to win a portrait experience with myself. The winner was a lovely lady Natasa & i look forward to painting her beautiful family in b & w, which i love. The runner up received a limited edition print of my Koi-Yin Yang, & was very excited to take it home. I also presented Gary Shulman with a lim print of Aussie Sunset, this was to thank him for sponsoring me…..im really thankful as i have some great leads come from this. I spent the day talking with many people about my art, & a lot took the time to watch a video of me painting….easier to do that than bring my studio set up to the Expo! One lovely lady  Alison Margaritus gave me a couple of great contacts in book publishing to follow up with & the gorgeous Zaharoula Harris -an amazing photographer & wonderful lady, discussing some potential ideas & projects for us to work on together. Looking forward to seeing where this all takes me. The other thing i got from yesterday is, there are people who’d enjoy learning my creative process & tips on painting……so with that im more determined than ever to add some of that here. I hope you all have a great week, will be back soon -❤️
