They might not look like much yet, but I’ve just blocked in three small painting that I sketched out over the weekend. The middle one is of a cat curled up on an armchair. The chair will be covered in a holly pattern.the cat on the window ledge will have a blue and white vase next to it, and the pottery is an imagined view in the snow,
I’ve got a busy week so I might not be able to get online much. Also I’ve got toothache!
Sketching designs for winter paintings that can still be good to have on the walls all year round. I’ve seen a painting with a pottery in the snow, so I’m going to do something similar with Holly and Ivy. The second idea is a cat on a windowledge with a blue and white vase next to it.
Will try and get them painted this week.
Working on this now. I don’t do many self portraits, but since I did one of my hubby I decided to do my own. At the moment I’m just working out the leaves positions. I might try and add more shading and add some autumnal colours.
Well I did it! The painting is long and thin, so I might add something to the lower third of the painting….
I’ve managed to finish it! Leonine, it’s going to a charity as a raffle prize. I hope they like it.
More done, I’m having a rest now…. I am enjoying doing this but I want to get the mane right, the photo I’m working from is quite high definition, I want to get as much detail in as I can without overdoing it. It’s about A4 size and acrylic on canvas.
Oh I don’t know! I can’t decide. Done a little sketch to think about it. I like doing surreal things, it’s hard to get it right but it can work….. Anyway I’m going to finish my lion painting and will come back to this….
