Have so many things I want to paint but another cat portrait won out. Here is a sleepy Mia. I worked on penciling her in, did a bit of ink work but thought I had better Mask her whiskers before I went any farther. Is hard letting the masking dry before I start on the painting again but I will this morning.
The lighting wasn't good for taking pictures but I tried any way. Just started the first part of the background color, is a combo of ink and watercolor and the paper was wetted first and the colors allowed to blend on their own. I will need at least two more layers of color before I have the depth the way I want.
Where I create and the wonderful view of the Hay field and Woodlands beyond.
This years Holiday painting is finally finished. Mediums I used are, Pen & Ink, Ink and Watercolor pencil washes, painted on Fabriano Artistico Bright White 140lb Hot press watercolor paper. If you are interested purchasing prints and other items with this painting on them, please check out my online stores.
Nearly finished with the painting,, just a few more hours to go. Decided not to do the rug..felt it would make the painting too busy but have added some highlights to anchor the kitten. Am not 100% happy with the gift boxes but then I had best learn how to wrap the packages a bit more straight. However,I am happy with the way Mia the kitten is turning out.
Will be very happy when I have finally finished this one!
