Cat Angel


Day 36 of drawing straight and this is a character that my younger sister came up with years ago when she was a teenager.  Thought I'd draw this one for her today as she came by and gave me lots and lots of art goodies (papers, paints) that I am very grateful for and this is a small token of my appreciation.  She and her partner also treated me out to lunch today which was so sweet!  Ah, feed the poor starving artist with art and food...what more can one ask for?

This was done with watercolours on canson watercolour paper, with a bith of brush penning and some Photoshopping.  I haven't painted using this medium for over 10 years and it's my first time on it.  It will take a lot of practice to get the feel of water colours again and even when I was using it regularly I always treated it too much like acrylic paints.

Did a bit of work this weekend for different jobs which was very nice and got approvals from the client as well which was even nicer.  More to do tomorrow and gym!  I baked brownies today...I really need that gym.  I am also currently trying to find a costume to wear to Armageddon in Australia (and most likely to the Super Nova next year).  See how we go...
