Last summer I was visited by a young deer that spent quite a bit of time outside the window at my cottage in Calabogie.
Here are two watercolour sketches I did recently from the photographs I took.
This is one of 3 pages of quick pen sketches I did of the deer. I don’t do enough of these. I tend to grab my camera first. He spent so much time here, I was able to get many photographs as well as 3 pages of sketches. As you can see there are no antlers in the pen sketches. I only noticed them when I had the photos up on the computer.
Here are some quick watercolour sketches I did recently.
They are all from photographs that I took at or near my cottage in Calabogie.
On one of my recent early morning walks I came face to face with the local fox. After staring at each other for a few seconds I tried to turn my camera on and get the lens cap off and s/he took off down the road. The fox turned off down a neighbour’s driveway. By the time I got to the driveway it was gone. I glanced around and in another neighbour’s back yard, across the road, was a very large raccoon. He gave me lots of time to take pictures.
This fused applique was much easier to do than my previous ones as it has fewer pieces. The quilting took a little longer as I outlined the background flowers and partially thread painted some of them, following the details in the fabric.
