Sketch Tuesday ~ Reptiles from South Africa

Last week I wrote about Barb of Harmony Art Mom’s Sketch Tuesday and invited you to join us.

She challenged us to sketch a fish or reptile native to our country.  In order to draw this, we needed to consult our field guides, nature books and encyclopedias.

Here’s what we sketched:

We each chose a reptile and sketched for about and hour.  Miss.L and Miss.K both used pencil crayons and outlined their pictures with black fineliner, while I did my sketch just with my fineliner.

“This week’s assignment, due Monday, April 19th:
Sketch your state fish or reptile.

(If you do not live in the United States, pick a fish or reptile native to your country.)

Here is a list of state fish: United States Fish
Here is a list of state reptiles: United States Reptiles

As always, everyone is welcome to sketch and if you send in your sketches by Monday, April 19th they will be included in the slideshow on Tuesday morning. Please send your sketches to: Please remember that the images need to be in jpg format so that I can easily upload them to Flickr for the slideshow.

Thanks for everyone’s continued support.
Barb-Harmony Art Mom

Now, I know that this post might come too late to remind you to join in this week, but pop over to Harmony Art Sketch Tuesday to see the slideshow tomorrow and make a note to join us all for the next Sketch Tuseday assignment.

Will you join us?

  1. Hi Nadene & Children,
    We join Barb’s Fish & Reptile too. We haven’t such spectacular SA’s reptiles, but we did our best with a fish & a European sand lizard.
    Click on my name or URL to see our blog on our sketches.
    You have some fine sketches & reptiles! Bravo.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
