Drawing tutorial: How to draw a cartoon lion.

Like to draw a lion? Check out: https://youtu.be/ok0BVIVY0VQ
If you would like to draw a lion, watch the video above and draw with me. It took me 3 minutes to draw the outline in marker.
TOP TIP: I like to draw the outline first in pencil. That way if I make a mistake, I can simply erase it. When I have all of the out lines drawn in pencil, then I take a black marker and go over these lines. Afterwards I take my time and enjoy colouring in my artwork. I hope you enjoy drawing this lion too. Which animal would you like to draw next?
Some of you know this from Art Academy’s Summer camp but for others: Did you know the famous french artist Rosa Bonheur learned the alphabet as a child by drawing an animal for each letter of the alphabet? One of her many favourite animals to draw and paint were lions. What is your favourite animal to draw?

Sighting of a Pride of Lions in Harold’s Cross, Dublin

Phew, it’s just a bunch of 7 and 8 year olds making their block-ins, ahead of creating their Mastercopies of 19th Century realism art.  The painting’s are starting to look so real you would be forgiven for thinking these were real lions. 
The artists are studying the work of world famous artist Rosa Bonheur.  Rosa Bonheur was a french artist and her largest and most famous work can be seen in New York’s wonderful Met Museum. We do however have one of her paintings here in Ireland, a beautiful painting of a stag (the animal not the pre-wedding weekend away):  https://www.theartstory.org/artist-bonheur-rosa-life-and-legacy.htm

Before teaching at Art Academy this morning, I had a lovely morning of yoga with Sarah Shannon Yoga . You’ll see if you scroll down to the end of the post, that now Sarah Shannon Yoga seems to have some competitors who have copied her business model. 😄

They are planning a website for this venture at #Coderdojo

Draw Your Own master Piece, The Grid Method

Many artists from Leonardo Da Vinci to Van Gogh have used the grid method to enlarge their drawings.
 
Try it yourself with Botticelli’s beautiful Venus below.
 
This was published in the recent Harold’s Cross Xpress. For those of your not in the area to receive the magazine, here is a copy of the drawing page for you to try.
