Week 5: Roz Stendahl

Week 5 is with the amazing Roz Stendahl!  I have admired Roz's animal drawings for a while and her blog is a treasure trove of information.  Her klass did not disappoint!  She shared quite a bit of technical information as well as explaining her style and some methods of drawing animals.  What fun!  I was excited to get out and do these drawings while waiting for my husband's doctor appointment last Friday.  These first two were drawn from live birds at a parking lot feeding station at the Wild Bird store.  Talk about difficult!  You definitely have to have patience when drawing birds.  I was glad for the opportunities I had to draw the animals at the zoo a few weekends ago.  Then, I picked animals that moved much slower.

If you want to learn a lot about various art supplies and drawing, be sure to check out Roz's blog and allow yourself plenty of time!

A sleepy Scrabble gave me the opportunity to practice on a very still pup. I rather like this one!  I am loving this opportunity to draw from life.  Roz also demonstrated drawing from animal models (stuffed specimens and realistic plastic toys).  Ryan's got a bunch of animal toys I can play with.  Should be fun!
