Elizabeth's Art and Craft Gallery

Welcome to my blog! As you can tell from the title, this is where I will be showing you my artwork and crafts that I have done. I would always ponder, where to put my finished pictures and projects, but I have found the solution! HERE! And of course, sometimes I'll also talk about just....well....stuff, that has nothing to do with art. But it will mainly be about art...alright, I think you get the picture! Enjoy! ~Elizabeth~

The Macaw

Surprise, surprise! I actually got around to painting a picture today! I know it's not the best. I think I was having "artist's-block" today, because i kept messing up on everything, and I had to keep ripping out pages from my pad of paper.
Well anyways, here's what I am talking about:



I'm also assuming it looks kind of bad because of the scanner and computer. Everything always looks different on the computer than how it is in reality.
So, this is a picture of a Macaw. I used watercolors, or watercolor pencils to be exact. But again, it kind of looks like scribbles, and no paint, but this is just because of the computer. Trust me, it looks 10 times better off the computer. And no, the black around everything is not dirt. It's rather a shadow. I've been trying to do the shadow effect thing for ages, but they never seem to come out right. But in my opinion, forgetting the fact that it's my own picture, I actually think the shadow looks kind of cool!
Anyways, hope you like it!
