Smol Paul – The Wobbly Cat

SmolPaul. Michele Clamp. Watercolor on paper. 14″x11″

A bit of a stressful one this. James suggested a watercolor of the internet famous @smolpaulthewobblycat who has Holly Brockwell as his main staff member. He is a rescue with cerebellar hypoplasia but is adorable nonetheless. Many thanks to Holly for the photo.

Basset Hound – Yay!

I don’t paint a lot of dogs. Dogs are tricky and I’ve shied away from them. But yesterday I was feeling in the mood for something different and a picture of a basset hound took my fancy.

I started him yesterday. Here’s the end of day 1.


Now this may not look like much but I was actually really happy at this stage. I’d managed to both get the white fur the right value and the shiny parts of the ears the right value. Once that was done the rest of it pretty much painted itself.

A few Odds and Ends – Roosters and Zbukvic

As I was so cheesed off with my Harvard Yard fails I did a quick rooster and Zbukvic practice. Feel a bit better now.

Sigh.

Southwick Camel

Southwick Camel. Michele Clamp. Watercolor 13”x19”

Another from our trip to Southwick’s zoo. You can’t really go wrong with a camel as a subject. They have wonderfully shaped heads and bodies and a very characteristic posture. I’m leaving this for today as I’m not sure it’s finished but, apart from a few touches, I think I’m pretty happy with it.

(James says I should do more detail in the fur but I’m not convinced).
