Photo from Adobe Stock. The majesty of these beautiful cats drew me (forgive the pun) to this picture, and I had to add them to my collection of big cats. The lioness sits beside her mate with dignity and pride, while her handsome partner wears an almost smug expression. And why wouldn't he look so pleased with himself? After all ..read more

by Frederique Horton Six years ago I started my coloured pencil journey, one that has now led me to be a finalist in different competitions and being exhibited. But more on that soon! Looking At You, 12 x 18 inches Let's go back to when it started, when a chance encounter with someone - who is now a very close friend - introduced me to coloured pencils. I had no idea about this medium (other than when I used to use them in school). I had no background in art, and certainly none in coloured pencils, so how did I fall in love with this medium and want to draw animals? I would say through she ..read more

by Sharan Merchant On December 31, 2023, I will have officially retired from a 40-year career in IT. Over the many years, I’ve been a computer programmer/analyst, web developer & designer, graphic designer, publication and media designer, and even done some tech support. While I’ve enjoyed most of the work, especially the design part, and constantly learning new things, I’ve never been passionate about it. Memorial Portrait of Pharaoh As a girl attending school, my favorite subject, hands down, was always art. While I enjoyed other classes, there was never any comparison to the joy art ..read more

by Lesley Martyn “I’ve joined a Saturday morning Art group for the next 4 weeks!” “What??” said my husband. “Since when are you interested in art?” This conversation was 6 years ago, almost to the day. I was feeling extremely stressed at work — we were running a large complicated Game Reserve in South Africa and I kept feeling that I needed a creative outlet where I could de-stress from the challenges of work. I had been following a local graphite artist for some time and much admired his realistic drawings. When I saw that he was advertising a Saturday morning art class, I jumped at the opp ..read more
