Well...another month over and done and into autumn we go then! Even though the nights will be closing in, that means we'll have all those GORGEOUS changing leaf colours as inspiration - beautiful and abundant warm earth tones splashed with the gold of autumn sunlight.
In celebration of a lovely summer, I created a little 8"x8" canvas as a birthday gift and thought I'd take some process pictures to blog for the Artists In Blogland Show & Tell Saturday. So, without further ado - here we go!
Stage one was to choose a pose and sketch it, then to add crumpled tissue texture in layers to a thinly gesso'd canvas, building the kitty cat up a little from the background in the process:
The texture from the tissue paper helps when adding colour with wax pastels. Time to add a garden for kitty to sit in. I raided my die-cuts box for some flowers - they're K&Co ones from the Brenda Walton range ...I've been saving them for something special!
Voila! One kitty. Hope you like him! Sending out my hugs to you for an awesome September - here's wishing something lovely happens for each and every one of us and those we hold closest to our hearts. - Shroo :)
