Patterns and Textures, Donna Bickley

Sandy Beach texture, used actual sand and paint to get effects. 

The Lion and the Lamb. Pencil and ink for the black part.

Texture  is a technique I am working on constantly. Since I have no formal art education, it's a constant search for improvement.


  1. I love that you added real sand. Salt works well too this way for texture.
    Your lions main looks furry!
