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.
Trying different things and hoping the mojo returns. Today – cats!
This is quite an emotional moment. The final day. I’ll write a longer piece tomorrow but this month has been fantastic fun and I’ve gained more than I thought possible in many ways. I thought I’d end where I started with a tiger. Isn’t she magnificent?
And here’s where I started :
My first cat (lions and tigers don’t count). I’ve shied away from cats as fur is HARD and I’ve also seen a lot of really bad cat paintings which puts me off. But I think this one has turned out rather well. This is mainly ultramarine and burnt sienna with just a dash of cad orange for the eye and alizarin for the nose.
I’ve signed up for
’30 paintings in 30 days’ challenge. Now I have it on good authority from
that we can get a head start on this and paint a few to have ‘in the bag’ as it were. If I were going to be critical I would say that the drawing’s a little ‘off’ but pretty happy all in all.
