Christmas Cats - 10 x 14 - WIPChristmas Cats will be my Christmas card this year and yes I am running just a tad late. I am really excited with my picture and really enjoying working on it. I am trying to be very patient and glaze each layer on the cats to develop their structure. It is so easy to smack on a wack of colour and then regret it, so slow and steady is my goal. The cats are white and since they are in the sun I really have to search for areas of shadow to define them. The background is going to be so much fun to do as I did a variation on the watercolour pouring technique and then I will do some glazing in the negative to pull out different things. I can see it taking shape in my mind but my husband just looks at it and says "the background is too light!!"
I hope all your holiday preparations are going well, it seems we are full steam ahead for Christmas. I am still finishing up a few commissions and trying not to panic. I know things will be done on time. Good luck with your prep and hopefully I will have the finished picture posted soon.
