Hello! My name is Cindy, and it’s been thirty days since my last post. However, it’s a painting post rather than a pen and ink post. That’s something!
Back in January or so I promised to trade a 5″ x 7″ canvas painted with a cat. Then I got painter’s block and didn’t paint until, well, this weekend. Considering my apparent reluctance to practice and my novice level skills with paints – something I would love to remedy but I find it hard to make myself sit down and paint – somehow this cat looks like a cat! He went through some crazy transformations as I tried to figure out what I was doing (see progress pics below).
I’m trying to determine how to best motivate myself for the next painting (please reply if you have a suggestion). I’m considering trying to do some fantasy type paintings for the art show at another convention later this year.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ve also done some new pen and ink art cards, but I’m gonna hold them for the next post. :D
Here is the handsome reference subject, a Main Coon called Relaxing Tiger Tamaris.
