Alas I haven’t been very active artistically these past couple of months.  I’ve been busy updating some old sites I belong to, sorting out my art room in preparation for some ‘physical painting’ and doing a bit of family history research as well.  I also needed a break from staring at the computer screen!

One painting I have managed to finish is “Rosie”.  Rosie is one of  two cats belonging to my friend Peter.  With this one I used a wide arrange of brushes on the fur.  If you know me I’ve been trying to find the secret of painting realistic fur ‘digitally’ for some time.  I still haven’t quite got it where I want it yet, but it’s an ongoing process.

I have a work in progress painting of both cats together, but it might be a little while yet before I can get back to finishing it up and perhaps playing about a bit more with the fur.

So here she is:  ROSIE



Self taught artist back living in New Zealand after more than a decade of living in Canada. Starting over in more ways than one but always up for the challenge!
