I don’t have words for what happened at the weekend but art is one universal language. The other one is love.
Join me for a Facebook LIVE at 2pm on Saturday May 16th https://www.facebook.com/events/270395307448222/ Where I will take you on a virtual trip to the @NGIreland We will sketch from the collection tocelebrate #NationalDrawingDay #stayin & #draw #COVID19 #coronavirus #coronavirus @Facebook #StaySafe
Check out his drawing made by Sarah Labanyi age 7. Sarah and her sister Ruthie are 7 days in to the daily drawing challenge and have been making some incredible art from the YouTube videos. I’ll feature more soon. You guys are doing wonderful work. I’m so proud of you.
I’m so excited to see the artwork coming in from all my wonderful artists. You are turning my feed into an art gallery. Keep them coming. Sheila
I have started a YouTube channel SheilaFlahertyArtist to share drawing tips and tricks. I’d love to know what you think? How can I improve and what kind of art videos would you like to see? Let me know in the comments under the video.
The 2 most asked questions I get about art are: 1. How long does it take to make a drawing? Different for every piece of art. In the one above about 50 minutes.
2. What art materials I use? I’ll share the art materials I used for the drawing in the video of the silver bow below- and I use these few art products quite alot. They are among my favourite art supplies.
These are the art materials I used in this drawing:

I’m really enjoying trying and testing all potential Da Vinci Box art supplies at the moment. As some of you may know I have an art materials subscription box cooking, where only the best art materials make the cut. I love having an arsenal of great art supplies to hand to keep me motivated and creative. Soon you can have them all and have them delivered too. Every month a new box of creative treats. Little sneak peek in the images below of my favourite art treats at the minute.
On another note I am trying out Tik Tok. Very addictive. See what you think of my videos so far: @sheila_artist and @da_vinci_box
