How plants turned predator

How plants turned predator

Carnivorous plants fascinate as much now as when their gruesome diet was first discovered. Molecular biology is helping botanists trace the origins of their predatory ways.

Super excited to be interviewed on The Sharpened Artist! In my interview I talk about my beginnings, my educational path, my changing art forms, my current projects and advise to artists starting out and those in mid-career. Grab a cup of coffee...or better yet your paint brush and hang out with me and John Middick on his podcast.

Big Mama- The Spectacle Owl - The Art of Mindy Lighthipe

The Spectacle Owl , Pulsatrix perspicillata is the first owl I ever saw in the wild. I was walking in the rainforest on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica when suddenly I felt as if I was being watched. I looked around and didn't see anything, until I looked up. The gaze of an owl staring at you is piercing. I stopped dead in my tracks and watched this magnificent raptor....

Today on our blog, author Mark Jerome Walters talks to editor Stephanye Hunter about his new book FLORIDA SCRUB-JAY. "The scrub-jay helps to change people’s perception about the scrub, and I think that’s a key part of why it’s so important to have written about the scrub-jay. You never write about just the animal. You can’t write about it without writing about where it lives." The illustration, which appears on the book jacket, is by Mindy Lighthipe Art.

Mindy, I am thinking about closing my personal page on FB and making it into something without all the extra political feeds, etc. Can you describe how you have set up your page? Is it a business page? I see that you have a way for people to join your mailing list. I know I took a class from you, but I think that was through a different kind of referral. I appreciate it.
Love my copy of "The Art of Botanical & Birds Illustration". On page 15 there is a "little tool" for holding flower tubes. What is this called and where do I find one. ASAP

Cat Fine Art Painting, Feline, Garden, "Tango in the Tulips" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe- 12"x14" Watercolor and Colored Pencil on Paper
Painting a butterfly from a photo from learnaboutbutterflies.com with kind permission of Adrian Hoskins. Always ask for permission to use reference photos from internet or books!!! First I take measurements. On layout paper I make a little box using my measurements, I mark some key points and make divisions which helps me make the drawing a accurate as I can. When I'm happy with my drawing I transfer it to the paper I will be using for my painting, in this case my sketchbook. For this purpose I use a homemade graphite tracing paper, using Mindy Lighthipe 's wonderful video https://youtu.be/gtpI7ZIVa4k I retrace some lines and make any corrections, then using a kneaded eraser I make the drawing very pale, almost invisible, and clean of graphite excess. Finally, I add color using either watercolor or colored pencils.
I saw your lesson on painting veins on leaves on Pinterest, and I love your work. Just wanted to let you know how much you inspired me. I'm not at your level, (I'm just a senior who started painting flowers after retirement.) but it was very helpful. Thanks.
