It really seems to be true that drawing something makes me feel more connected to it. This has very much been the case over the past month as I have attempted to draw some friends from the animal kingdom.
I have been greatly inspired by two books: The Creature Garden by Harry and Zanna Goldhawk and Imagine a Forest by Dinara Mirtalipova. As someone who felt very nervous about drawing animals, both these books helped me get started and guided me along the way.
Here are some new friends I have made over the last couple of weeks:
Erm… I was feeling a tad protective when I drew this dragon!
Thanks so much for joining me for this chapter of my Painted Diaries adventure. Wishing you and your animal friends a lovely November!
