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
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.
I haven't shared anything in a while, went from pencil drawing to colored pencil. Now I am trying a little painting. What do you think
I loved horses when I was a little girl, even had a few. I'm happy just to draw them now
Just thought it would be fun to draw a cartoon for a change. The way giving makes me feel is the best part about Christmas for me its seeing other people happy and of course animals
Have not had time to draw much, but I finally got to finish this one. Just a pencil drawing but I kinda like it. :)
Couldn't really think of what I wanted to draw, so I decided to try a baby cow, guess it turned out okay.
I've always loved horses, so this is not my first drawing of one and I'm sure it want be my last
Well here is another horse, guess I just love horses
Just finished this drawing, I am pretty happy with it, ready to start another, just have to decide what I want to draw :)
I love dogs, I have 3 strays that someone threw out like trash. I also love to draw them. Animals and drawing are 2 things that make me very happy in life :)
Love watching wild Bunnies running in my back yard, so here is a pastel pencil drawing of one of the babies
I wanted to try and draw a bear, so I found this picture and just started drawing. I think they turned out pretty good for the first try :)
Finally got to draw a quick pencil drawing. I think this one will soon have a poem to go with it.It's my first drawing of 2016, looking forward to many more :)
Well Ivan didn't have time to draw a picture with my poem, but I did want to wish you a Happy New Year and thank you for all your positive comments about my art :)
I don't have a lot of drawing and poems that go together, but think I may start doing more. The drawing is not great, but I kinda like the poem, What do you think ?
Red Birds remind me of Christmas, Think I will use this for a Christmas card. Now I just have to think of a poem to go with it, I do a little writing also. Do you know a site to share poems ?
Winter is on its way and I am so not ready. I did this to remind myself it won't last long in South Carolina and spring will be here before I know it :)
Sorta a self portrait of how I feel, but I did it as me as a child,a little weird I guess but I kinda like it
I love drawing animals, and dogs are one of my favorites. This is my first time drawing a German shepherd, I think it turned out okay. Ready to start my next drawing, but have not decided what it will be :)
This started off just a pencil drawing, but I decided to add color. Love pastels pencils, just so messy, I always smug my work :(
I love drawing animals, here is another horse drawing. Done with pencil, colored pencil and soft pastels.
I did this pencil drawing of a baby and then I thought it would be fun to let my friends guess boy or girl, so I put pink and blue in the background. Almost everyone got it right. What do you think Ivan ? :)
I really worked hard on this one, thought it was gonna be a flop. But I keep working on it and pretty happy with the way it turned out. By the way you are right it was a boy. :)
I love birds, I have several bird feeders and humming bird feeders also, so here is my first attempt at a soft pastel drawing.
I am still trying to improve on drawing portraits, my problem is they don't look like who I am drawing. This one turned out okay, everyone that knows this man and dog, knows who it is, so I must be getting better :)
Some people think Mermaids do exist, I wonder, but if they do I Don't think they would look quite like this.
Really not into drawing cartons but thought I would give it a try. It was not as easy as I thought it would be. I think it turned out okay, everyone knows who she is so I must have done something right :)
I am really happy with the way this turned out. I love to draw animals, not too good at people but I think she is really pretty. :)
Since its almost valentines day, this is my valentines picture. the 2 whales make a heart in the middle.
Thought I'd do something simple, never seems to be enough time in the day. I could draw 24/7 if I could
Christmas is almost here, hope this reminds everyone why we really celebrate Christmas.
My sister loves Elvis, she even has an Elvis room, full of anything to do with Elvis. I finally found something she doesn't have. A drawing by me
Seen a couple of deer's this morning, so I thought why not just draw another Buck. My water color pencil drawing was a flop so this made me feel a little better :)
Wanted to draw with my colored pencils,so I thought a sea turtle with the blue behind it would be pretty.
We live out and the country and see lots of deer's, but we do not hunt, I know some people love to hunt but I could never kill one of these beautiful animals. I thought the little sign would be cute with my name signed on it.
I Really love birds, well I love all animals, big and small. I really like the colors in these birds and they form a heart as they sit close to one another
I love drawing pictures with color and I don't know how to paint so I guess colored pencils will do for now
Really starting to love colored pencils. A friend of my wanted me to draw a fox, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.
Trying hard to learn to blend colored pencil. I've seen some that are amazing.
my second drawing of a koala, much better than the first. sometimes I can see my mistakes in a drawing and draw it over and it turns out much better. so don't give up. keep drawing.
This is truly a blessing, my two beautiful Granddaughters. Both of them sleeping like two little angels.
My sister really loves panda's, so I tried to draw her one. The first one I drawn wasn't to happy with, but I kinda like this one. What do you think ?
I used this web sight to learn to draw this elephant. The legs and feet was the hardest for me, but I think I got it
