Where do cats get there energy? Running, jumping, chasing, getting his claws stuck in the throw over the settee.
Pouncing on his toys, chasing his sister. Being chased by her. Upstairs and downstairs. Into the bathroom and kitchen. Jumping up on windowsills and the cat tree…
Then a wash…. Back, sides, face. Suddenly calm.
I’ve finally finished the Hare painting. I’ve added the Harebells. I’m not sure about the background. I may play with it tomorrow, but enough for one day’s work. I’m also not sure about the proportions of its head…. I’m too tired to think.
Kittens from two years ago, popped up on my FB memories. They were so cute, they went to good homes and we kept their mom and her brother who I had taken in as rescue cats.
Black and white cats are lovely but I would have other colours, it’s just that there seem to be a preponderance of them round here.
I went out this morning to go to the Orme Art group. We were supposed to do limited pallette paintings, white, red, yellow ochre and black. I cheated and used some cerulean blue in the background. I want to add harebells, a beautiful bell shaped flower found in the countryside. The image is an amalgum of a photo from a magazine that I’d taken a photo of and a photo off the Internet. I’m not sure if I will finish this or any of the other paintings at the moment. Every time I feel better I do stuff, then I feel ill again. I guess I’m trying too hard. But I wanted some really strong paintings for the exhibition. I hope they look good. Anyway I’m having a rest for half an hour.
Another set of drawings I did on the sketchfu website. I can only see these because I saved then to Facebook before the site closed several years ago now.
I would like to find another site where I could practice my drawing skills. But there is nothing close to it I can find in drawing apps.
Anyway it’s nice to see my artistic memories.
Occasionally my friend posts a photo of the male cats that she had from us when they were kittens. It’s two years since they left and they certainly have grown. They look a lot like their mother. They seem to be very close to each other.
To be honest I would love to visit and see them but they are a bit too far away.
Anyway I pinched this photo to remind me if them. Hope you like it.
I’ve started a new painting. My cat decided to climb up being my easle and popped his head out from behind a pastel drawing I’m doing. I decided to do a painting of it.
I’m going to try and do some different paintings over the next few weeks.
Of course I’m using artistic licence tto change the background.
