This is my cat painting for our Humane Society -- I approached it the same I did my dog painting (see last post). Both my cat and dog paintings will be in our local Humane Society's online silent art auction in October.
Above is the final watercolor and pen and ink painting for the Humane Society Art Auction. The silent art auction isn't up yet on the website (which is linked above) but it will be in October I believe. All proceeds go to supporting the mission of the Humane Society.
For those interested here was the painting before I used my pen and ink:
That's why I absolutely love my fountain pens!!!!! Thank you to Quentin Blake for sharing his work with the world. I picked up my first fountain pen because of Sir Blake (he has no idea I am alive so anything negative about my work is all me).
Finally, I've begun my watercolor painting for the Humane Society Art Auction. I just didn't know what to do, and I still don't know exactly what I'm going to do.
I cut some watercolor paper to fit the frame I will use, and taped it with some Frog tape for delicate surfaces. Then I blocked off my surface and spattered cold coffee onto the surface. I moved it around and this is what I've come up with. Tomorrow I will begin to find the dogs/cats/people sitting on a couch together....or something like that:
Once it dries I'll have to iron out the paper because even though it is good quality watercolor paper it still bubbled up a bit. I like to do this kind of thing. It is really letting the project lead. Plus, it is like a treasure hunt.
The one above is from this morning while Megan ate her breakfast. I don't know who the little girl is but I think she is cute.
The one below is a quick sketch I did the other day trying to figure out what to draw for the Humane Society silent art auction.
I sketched Annette in about 20 seconds today in my journal. My sketching has been pretty limited the last week or so. Not sure why - -guess I'm getting busier with school stuff. I hope to have a new page on this website about some resources I plan to offer. They are in the test stage right now. I think they are a great idea and will be a great help but sometimes the idea is a lot better in my mind than in reality. So we shall see.
