Who is the Gallery of Friends?
A community of Instagram artist friends who like to promote each other. But it is also a virtual gallery show casing art of its members.
What is our goal?
To promote each other’s work as well as communication and collaboration between the members of the Gallery of Friends.
How does this work?
Each month, members of the Gallery of Friends can submit 2 or more pieces of art they want showcased and include a little backstory of the pieces. Then the community will pick out their favorite for each artist. Those go into that month’s exhibition.

After the tree …. the pebbles!
I really like this very smooth rendering of watercolor inks from @ecolinedeutschland from @royaltalensfrance

Title: Eurasian Otter
Artist: Helen Page
One of my favourite animals & feel privileged to have seen a few in the past. Such characters too
Decided I needed to have a go at one again as feeling more comfortable about my style. It’s been quite a journey & I am still finding my way.
Artists who advise you shouldn’t keep comparing yourself to others, are so right. Concentrate on developing & having fun.
If like me you need an otter fix, check out @shetland_nature for so many amazing shots.
Title: BOBA TEA
Artist: Cara V
Saw this prompt on @odnatamyara’s #ohsweetiemermay and ofc I had to do this! This was the first mermaid I drew this month, actually 😂 Kinda squeezed in a couple other prompts too: @mermay_official’s ‘obsessed’ (because I love bbt) and #crocus from #maysflowerchildchallenge— haha tried to include the petals but idk if that was successful at all… Does the colour count 😂
Artist: Pigi Glarou
Leopard in graphite and color pencils. Drawing was based at a thought I had about instinct and behavior. For example if someone acts nervous towards me, I might start becoming nervous as well. If someone acts like they are being the pray, I might become a predator and start hunting them. And so, during these thoughts ,a beautiful leopard was created.
