In Between

December 10, 2015

In between custom work, I did a few more pieces. The first one is my little Sunshine. I love the poses she takes when she sleeps, she looks so comfortable and peaceful.
Inspired by one of my commissions, I decided to start a new series of "Fancy Cats". I can't wait to see how it evolves.

Between commissions

October 13, 2014

Christmas is right around the corner, and with it comes the custom portraits rush. I've already started working on a few, but I won't post them here or anywhere until after the Holidays. I don't want to spoil the surprise for anyone.

In between commissions, I'm hoping to be able to draw and paint a little too so I don't leave this page completely blank.
Here are a couple I finished lately:


Cheetah 3 - 5x7" - Colored Pencils



Cat and Crow 21 - 8x10" - Colored Pencils

Although this hot and muggy weather is making me a bit too lazy!

I'm so glad I took that fun time off, a little while ago, to paint whatever I felt like. I started drawing animals again. I just listed 3, and I'm preparing a WIP (work in progress) of a tiger. I'll turn it into a video, and will share it with you.

I'm almost done with a nice drawing of a duck, but today I just felt like having fun. So I did more of those oil pastel sgraffito paintings. I really enjoy creating them.

~ Paintings #12, #13, and #14 ~

Today I learned to use a fun technique using oil pastels, and an embossing tool. It's called sgraffito. What you need to do is add some layers of colors on your paper, and then add a layer of black on top. With the embossing tool (you can also use a toothpick, or a skewer), you scratch away the layer of black pastel and draw anything you like. For best results, it's best is to use a smooth support, and try to make sure the colors cover the whole surface before adding the black.
I got to use my imagination, be creative,  and had a lot of fun. I've got some ideas for a few more, but I had to stop at three.
So many things to do, so little time....
