I thought about showing a progression of
photos in the making of this little piggy.
Hence the “Anatomy” part of my blog title.
We are in the midst of a massive snow storm
and the photos turned out so dark.
There is currently no sun.
My little piggy looked awful.
This was a scanner photo,
which is why he looks better.
This is the first pig I’ve done.
I think he needs a bow sitting at an angle
just in front of that ear on the left.
Next time for sure!
I am loving this animal tutorial I got from
Mindy Lacefield’s Etsy shop!
Drawn/painted on Hahnemühle‘s exceptional
My paper of choice right now.

Watercolored with Schmincke watercolor pans,
line work done with
from Zebra Pen.
Encouragement and assistance provided by
my ever wonderful friends
Sandra Strait and Jennifer McLean.
Where would I be without you two???
I don’t want to find out!!!
I am an Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pen
who provided me with the pens for this project.
They worked awesomely over the watercolor
and the acrylic I used trying to cover up a
hot mess I made in the background.
Love these technical drawings pens!
I am doing product reviews for
They provided me with the
I used for said piggy.
I can’t praise it enough!
No warping or dimpling –
and trust me! I used a ton of water –
several times –
on this sweet little piggy!
What should I work on next?
I guess you will have to come back and see.
Thank you, faithful readers!
You are the reason I create!
Should you be encouraged to work on
a sweet little animal,
I would love to see it!
