I know, she’s so sad, but I fell in love with the reference photo( I don’t know who the photographer is) and had to try and draw her! Happy weekend everyone!#drawing #sadgirl#graphite#colorpencils #artistsoninstagram #drawingasmeditation #dailyart #dailypractice

And now for something completely different - a doodle!!! And who doesn’t love purple??!! I like drawing them, they are meditative. Happy Valentines Day❣️❣️❣️❣️#drawing #doodles #instagramartists #filter#drawingasmeditation

I think that this teal is my favourite colour, but I’m so fickle - another beautiful colour will come along and catch my eye, and I’m in love all over again!!! Working on hands, good to practice them! #colorpencils #graphite #drawing #Painnt# instagramartist#artistofinstagram #beautiful woman#handstudy#colours#dailydrawing

“Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.” Margaret Mead
I really like that quote - it’s sobering!! #colorpencils #graphite #drawing #littlegirl #beautiful#lightlyfiltered#artistsoninstagram #drawingasameditation #dailydrawing #face#colours

Note to self:” Once in awhile, blow your own damn mind.” #wearetheclique . This was a wonderful photo that I found on Dreamscape and tried to find out who the photographer was to give him/ her credit, but couldn’t find its origin. I drew it and them took it to Painnt were I found this wonderful filter! I was just told the photographer’s name it’s @3joko .I’m a sucker for my apps! Let’s not talk about the little boys’ wonky eye - I guess I lost patience with trying to get it right!!!#graphite #drawing #filtered#Paintt#Dreamscope#artsofinstagram #dailydrawing #practise #wishicouldpaintlikethis#boy#cat#cute

I started this page to chronicle my own artistic progress and to interact with an artistic community. Both successful! Today I’m pondering the word “artist”. It’s never been a term that I used to describe myself. I’d say I was a designer, a crafts person, a jewellery maker, an art lover, a weaver, and sometimes just that “ I love to make things”! So today I looked up the word “artist” and discovered that it’s rather a subjective, straightforward term for one who draws or paints as a hobby or a profession and has some skill at it and is devoted to it.That’s it??? And I was afraid to apply that term to myself! So today I’m coming out and declaring myself an artist!!! Woohoo!! 🎉🎉🎉🎨🎨🎨👩🏻‍🎨👩🏻‍🎨😁All my IG family are artists too. We all range in where we are in our progression - but I want to acknowledge those that are SO much more accomplished !What a fabulous thing to be!!! Happy creating everyone!#artist#artoninstagram #instagramartist #graphite #drawing #beautifulwomen #colour#colorpencils #instagramfamily #celebratecreativity#devotedtoart

I’m confusing myself! Am I drawing or illustrating??? I love to do all the shading and blending, but then I’m also excited to use as few lines as I can! I guess I really am trying to figure out what I want to do!!! I’ve been drawing a lot of little people and giving them really huge eyes! Decisions,decisions!!#colorpencils #artworks #artoninstagram #drawing #photoedits #minimalfilter#beautifulwomen #drawingasmeditaion #illustration #sketch#decisions #dailydrawing

“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are”. Anais Nin. I totally believe that quote- we can only see from our own perspective! I’m procrastinating right now - I really need to be calling my internet company and argue with them - and be on hold for an hour, and have them disconnect me by accident - but I just want to draw!!!!#colorpencils #artworks #drawing #drawingasmeditaion #artistsoninstagram #beautifulwomen #filter#painntapp #colour#color#lovecolour#dailypic

This is my drawing with someone’s fabulous filter from Dreamscope. I don’t know who to credit for the filter, but it certainly worked beautifully on my lady! Happy Saturday all ( Sunday for others!!)#colorpencils #artworks #drawing #beautifulwomen #gold#hair#filter#dreamscope#goldenhair #experimenting#artnouveau#digitalart#createarteveryday #dreaingasmeditation#artoninstagram#woman

I seem to have graduated from Hair to Children! I love how this filter in Painnt put the sparkles into her eyes!#colorpencils #artworks #drawing #sketch#illustration #filter#child#bigeyes#drawingasmeditaion #practice

Working on shading. Just when you think that you’re done - there’s more to do!! The second photo is filtered with Painnt - the colours are gorgeous! #drawing #graphite#pencil#shading#blending#art#sketch#artworks #drawingasmeditaion #faces#painntfilter

Thought I would introduce myself! As you can tell from my photo, I have red hair and black eyes. You can tell also that I am very adventurous as I like to ride with the hippos. It was exhilarating- although mounting and dismounting was difficult. Seriously, I have been creating “things” for my whole life. I have tried every craft known to man. I have been a clothing designer, a weaver, a teacher,a jewelry maker, and now I’m back to my roots with drawing. The older I get the more my passion for creativity and beauty and colour grows. It has always been such an integral part of my life - but now it really IS my life! Thankfully , I have so much more to learn and explore. Painting is the next frontier for me and terrifies me as well as beckoning me! As I have said before; I am so grateful to have this wonderful instagram community to be part of! I delight in watching us all grow in our creative endeavours!#hello#art#drawing#humour#instagramer #introduction

Here is the last of my “Hair Girls”! I move on now! We are expecting a huge snowstorm tomorrow and I’m hoping we keep our power. Sure wish we had an alternative heat source! I’m such a winter hater!!!! Yes,yes, so happy for all you skiers!!! Give me the sand between my toes anytime!😘#drawing #artworks #color #sketch#illustration #drawingasmeditaion #hair#ihatewinter#lovethebeach#snowstorm#theskyisfalling#winterworrier

In case I don’t post again before New Years, I wanted to send you all my best wishes for a happy, healthy, creative New Year! I’ll enjoy following you and seeing how how everyone progresses and tries out new ideas and techniques! Here is another of my Colourful Hair series!! No filters needed - I’m having fun coming up with these hair colours! I’d like to have them all!!! #artworks #color #drawing #drawingasmeditaion #sketch#illustration #hairstyles #colouredpencil#graphite#creating#fun#challenge#justdoingmything

I was looking for more reference photos and came across lots for “ coloured hair” - so expect some wild, wonderful and weird hairdos coming . I’m partial to reds, purples and the occasional head of teal - it’s all gorgeous!#drawing #drawingasmeditaion #artworks #color #filters #beautiful#women#hair#sketch#practice#artastherapy #challenges#graphite

I took down my last post because once I posted her I realized that her nose was very distorted! So thank you to those of you who liked her despite her faults!! You are indeed IG friends!!! I’m offering up this strange creature instead- she’s a totally different style from what I usually do and I liked that. She’s at once beautiful and creepy( other worldly?)!!!! Hope you enjoy her anyway! Happy Holidays to all .#color #drawingasmeditaion #filter#dreamscope #beautiful #creepy#different#happyholidays#style#coloursmakemesohappy#sketch#art#

Good evening/morning/afternoon!! Here is a naked drawing of mine! I have this very tiny book( it’s 2/12 x 3inches/7x8cm) called,”Quotable Women”. Here’s a quote from it ;”And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.” Erica Jong#drawingasmeditaion #drawing#sketch#graphitepencil #beautiful #women#quotesbywomen#progress#fun#growth#shading#dailypractice

This lady is mine!I hope that everyone enjoys her. She is a calm, peaceful, in -the -moment -woman...Totally unlike her creator!!! I think the only time I’m peaceful and calm is when I’m creating these lovelies!!#drawingasmeditaion #color #drawing #photo edit#dreamscopeapp #artastherapy#ilovecolour#beautifulwomen#lightandlove#balance#peace#insidebeauty

NOT MY ART!!!!This is my friend Maryam’s artwork! Her work is wonderful! She’s giving people a chance to win a free portrait from her - I shouldn’t tell you because I want to win!! But go to her page @m.sadat.torabi and see for yourselves!#@m.sadat.torabi#bestnine #colorpencils#portraits#contest#friend#beautifulart

My most special cat - my cat, who I miss so much!!She is long departed, but still very much in my heart❤️. I was working my way up to drawing her, and now I think that I’ll stop drawing cats for awhile! This one is totally unfiltered!! #drawing #sketch#cat#ilovecats#graphite#marker#colouredpencil#cateyes#drawingasmeditaion #challengingmyself
