The video shows how the Bobby cat painting evolved from start to finish.
Last week I finally completed the panda bear drawing by adding a bamboo tree wall, and a pebble pathway to the illustration. It is interesting to compare it to the previous post where the pandas were all by themselves. Some people like simple black and white drawings, but I prefer a bit of color, so adding a vibrant background made this drawing feel more complete.
I created a video illustrating how I created the background for my mother panda bear and her baby.
I have painted a picture of Irina the cat with oil paint, which is a scene of her running out of the woods. It appears as if the she is mischievous little kitty who is finally coming home. Art can be quite a personal thing, and this composition tells a story about my cat Irina.
Irina is my little black cat with coppery eyes, and she was the inspiration for my latest painting.
I have started a new drawing of Lady dog, who was my companion from 1994 to 2007. She was a stray dog we adopted, and the vet suspected she was about two years old when she came to live with us.
Today’s post is e is for easel. One way to save money on art supplies is to purchase an easel at a second hand store, like the small one I show off in this video. I have also purchased new packages of colored pencils and acrylic paint sets at thrift stores, so you never know what you might find at yours.
Here is an interview with Aya Katz about art and her book In Case There’s a Fox.
