Good artworks start with passion!
The BirdsConTour Art for Life project aims to inspire artists of all levels from all over the world and invites artists to show a picture of their artwork in this space.
The creative project Art for Life carries the message of promoting welfare and conservation through tourism to a far wider public audience than ever before through the communication medium of art.
Art is unquestionably one of the best options to spread the word of welfare and conservation and marketing tourism, particularly if one reaches beyond the borders.
The BirdsConTour Art for Life project supports artists worldwide, up till now in Namibia, Botswana and Germany.
Translating words into sketches
Pencil sketch (drawing)
Mrs. Olivia Koch
A pencil sketch is a rapid freehand drawing that is usually not intended to be a finished work serving as a record something the artist sees or has seen, serving for recording or developing an idea to remember or it might serve, as in the case of Mrs. Olivia Koch, to graphically demonstrate words of sayings and poems.
The common pencil is the most immediate and sensitive of the drawing media. Variations in pencil marks depend on the hardness of the graphite lead in the shaft. The harder the lead, the finer the line. Pencils are described as a dry medium, in contrast to pens that contain liquids.
