3 steps to paint a pet friend

Termite is the pet friend of the day.
Thank you for playing Elizabeth. The next free painting drawing is June 30th.


  1. Out of curiosity, do you freehand sketch the pet friends?

  2. OK the real truth....I use a projector . I do not have the time to spend getting each one right . Not at these prices. I think many artists use this as a tool but don't admit it.
    I think it is just a tool one of many and it gets me to the fun parts faster. I am sure I will be seen as a villain for telling the truth but there it is. They sell these things in art catalogs for a reason. Artists use them.

    1. You are exactly right! I think most people use projectors, light boxes or other tracing methods to get the basic outlines in place on the paper. The watercolor paint flows to make the lovely results.

    2. I knew I wasn't the only one.
