As Christmas approaches (can you hear those sleigh bells ringing yet?) my business tends to pick up for commissions, which means that I will be blogging less and less - however, when I do post it will be with portraits that I'm working on, with step-by-step photos whenever I remember to stop in between washes and snap a photo!
My Etsy store was needing some new original ACEO cats - here are 2 new ones listed this week, and one that I completed for a client on commission.
Let's start with the lovely Matisse seen above - sold, but I will offer prints soon
Here we have "Sacha" - as my Dad pointed out, it looks like he's getting ready to leap tall buildings in a single bound (no, it wasn't my intention for the white area to the right of Sacha to look like a super-hero cape, but I like the resemblance!)
Looking at it again, wouldn't it be fun to paint Sacha with a mask and cape, resting his front paws on a pumpkin for Hallowe'en? Hmmmm.....
And last, please meet "Astrid" - sitting on top of her world. I love the contrast of Cerulean Blue and Quinacridone Gold (the orange tones) - one of my favourite colour schemes.
