7 Chickens And A Piglet

12 Aug

I had a lovely day out at Swansea’s Community Farm today. I managed to steal a couple of small relatives for a day or two and took them up to the farm’s summer playscheme. They got themselves immersed in mucky farmy things and I drew. Seven chickens and a piglet, just like it says on the tin. After the very tight and focussed portrait heads of last week, I used a much freer approach with the free Markers app on my Sansung Galaxy Note 8. It’s a much freer style, but it has to be because the birds move around so much. Proper fidgets. Not so the piglet who had a warm muddy puddle to loll it 🙂 Here’s a link to the farm’s Facebook page.

Sleepy Pigs And Wonky Ducks

Husb and I spent a happy few hours at Swansea Community Farm today. There was a hog roast, demonstrations of spinning and felt making, live bands, and animals. The critters live pretty free lives and many were wandering around. These sweet spotty piglets were dozing in a shady spot out of the dazzling sunshine. They piled up on top of each other on a comfy bed of hay.

They were nice and still while I drew them on my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8 with a free Markers app. The ducks, however, would not stay still. I did my best but they’re all wonky.
