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
