Cat in Sun
Cat in Sun (sketch)
6x8in oil on canvas board $100.
This was painted as a very quick demo in the afternoon session today.
It was painted from a photo and I placed him in a grassy setting.
It is definitely a sketch, but I feel I was successful in having him look
as if he was moving. What a lovely, chubby Tabby!
I know I said I was going to show a step-by-step demo of my
fracturing technique with the painting, Pouncer.
Here is what has happened.
A while back Daily Paintworks had contacted me to see if I would be interested
in making a couple of ArtBytes on my Fracturing Technique as they felt there
would be some interest in them.
I went through th typical feelings of, no one will want to see them...
I am not good enough, but Jennifer Newcomb was very nice
and suggested I take my time and think about it.
In between then and now, I did the move into the new gallery and
teaching space. My life was hectic.
Then along came the Birdbrain Challenge and I submitted, Meet Mr Gull.
From the response I received from DPW and my blog, I gathered that there
are quite a few who would enjoy seeing how I do my technique.
I sent Jennifer the notes and demo I had prepared to go on my blog regarding "Pouncer"
and I received a very encouraging reply so I am going to work on it
in earnest and see what I come up with.
The DPW crew offer proffessional help and guidance so it could be fun.
Wish me luck please.
