I think this does it for my practice of cats. I'll have to find some photos of dogs next.

A Floral My Way

I was inspired to try my hand at a floral in this newish style I've been working with. As expected, it turned out full of motion and colour, although I was trying for a subdued effect. Hmm! I guess I just can't fight my current muse.

This is 22" x 22", on hot press w/c paper that has been gessoed and had applications of GAC between layers of acrylic pigment.

I'm going to try another in which I don't have pencil lines showing! I found them distracting but didn't think about that until way past time to remove them! (rolling eyes icon here!)
