Drawings and Paintings
by Betty Chavis




Let me introduce you to Betty Chavis from Rowesville, SC- US. She has been drawing awesome pencil and pastel drawings and paintings of various animals. Her artwork is now available in this large gallery.
It is very interesting to see how her drawings and techniques evolved in time and are getting better.

Her Rooster drawing reminds me very much of an old European masters painting. The calm colors and the rooster’s pose have somehow an old times impression. Very nice approach.

Pencil drawing of a Leopard, in my opinion, would perfectly suit as an illustration into children’s book. It has a very gentle pencil touch and though leopards are big cats and predators, this one looks rather friendly.

The very same is with the Tiger Cub. I love how Betty worked out the tiger’s eyes in blue. This idea is just awesome! Besides, the blue eyes color goes well with tiger’s fur color. A truly perfect color match!

Baby Bunny among the flowers. Very nice combination also would be suitable for children’s book as an illustration. I would absolutely recommend this!

I love how she colored all her bird drawings. Betty Chavis’s vivid and brilliant idea. Very uplifting feeling if you see them. Red Christmas Bird drawing is just an awesome idea for Christmas decoration.

Drawing of the Fiery Fox walking in the snow with the grey background. These are just awesome details. Can you see the gentle contrast? If I see this color coordination, my eyes are just feel rested and relaxed. Let’s study these ideas and apply them in our own art work.

You see, we can find many beautiful and unusual details in almost every single drawing or sketch. Most of us do not even think about creating anything BIG just for the “being the greatest” sake. It just comes out naturally if you enthusiastically draw or paint.
