Drawing with Uncle Pat

My Uncle Pat scored some drawing supplies for Christmas.

A few posts back I introduced you to my Uncle Pat. He shared a drawing he had done and many of you asked Pat to draw some more pictures over Christmas.

He seemed to really enjoy drawing so our family got him some art supplies for Christmas. The last few days I sat with Pat as he drew pictures and have posted them below along with a couple videos. I hope you enjoy.

Uncle Pat Talks about his artwork.

A scary Bear, a Spear, and a Crow.

When Pat draws he gets really into it. His face is just inches away from the paper and he doesn't come up until he's done. I loved how he did the feathers in the crow art.

Pats friend the Cat.

The only thing we suggested Pat draw was the Moose and me shown below. Everything else he just decided to do himself. I find it interesting that all of them with exception of the Snowman were an animal. He likes animals apparently?

A Chick.

I thought he did a great job on this baby Chicken. The color and detail came out awesome!

An Alien Moose.

Pats art reminds me of something Stefan Bucher might have animated.

The playful Snowman.

In the midst of drawing all his animals, Pat quickly drew out this snowman too.

The green Grouper.

I liked the simplicity of this art and the shape of it's mouth.

Uncle Pat Draws Me.

My youngest sister Amy told Pat to draw me and this was the end result.

I just wanted to thank everyone for commenting on the previous post I did about my uncle Pat. We were able to show Pat the blog post and read through all the comments for him and he enjoyed it a lot. We had fun drawing together and I thank God for him, he has a very gentle spirit and I think his art rocks!

Blend it!

WOW! Those drawings are fantastic. I really, really like the crow. The first videos are so fun too. My face hurts from smiling so big. Looks like he really spent some time with the art supplies. I wish I could crank out drawings one after another. Please tell Pat thank you for sharing and to keep up the good work.

Wow! Pat really has a cool style that you can see in all his drawings. Art supplies for Christmas was a great idea. Has Pat ever tried painting? I'd love to see more of his work.

Those drawings look totally great! Maybe he could make them into prints to sell!

Thanks, Von, for showing the unique talents and gifts God gives all his children!

I love it! It's so inspiring to see Uncle Pat's artwork and how true and pure it is. It reminds me not to be afraid to fill the page and just crank out sketches. What a blessing he must be to your family. Thanks for sharing, Von! :-)

Pat seems like an amazing guy. I love his drawings! I also love your advice "There is no wrong way to draw" this is timeless and transcends age, ability, and gifting.
