Raining Cats and Dogs

I decided to brave the grey, dreary Yorkshire weather to go outside photograph my new cat painting. The minute I stepped out of the door it started raining, and the dogs who had been following me decided it was not such a good idea and retreated back inside. Juno and Rio watched progress with a great deal of interest from inside the conservatory.

Unfortunately the light was about as dismal as the rain, so the colours on the painting are not quite right. I expect however I will get some good light at some stage, I could have used my state of the art flash, but Bryan sat on it and killed it completely.So, this is the new one, it is huge for me, 24 x 20 inches on drafting film. I have airbrushed the background which will need much more work, it is just to give me an idea of colours.

I have started working the fur in coloured pencil.



To be continued.

Gayle - you HAVE to do that profile of Juno and Rio. I have titles flashing through my brain every time I look at it ("Big Bruv" etc)

Great start to the kitten

I can not tell enough how I love to see the pictures of your dogs.
They let me think about sweet times.
