Rainbow Kitties and Hairy Dogs, Plus Self Portrait
Rainbow Kitties and Hairy Dogs
This month I joined a challenge on a friend's facebook page to do 30 ACEO cards in 30 days in June 2014. I usually pick a theme or subject for a challenge like this, and my theme here is Rainbow Kitties. These are all 2.5 x 3.5 inches. They will all be for sale in my Ebay Store listed under Rainbow ACEO Kitties/Animals. I am using various mediums including watercolor, pen and ink, Acrylics and Gouache. Here is the first week's work: #1-7
Rainbow Kitty #1
Rainbow Kitty #2
Rainbow Kitty #3
Rainbow Kitty #4
Rainbow Kitty #5
Rainbow Kitty #6
Rainbow Kitty #7
And here are this week's puppy dogs . . .
I mistakenly called this a long haired Chihuahua at first, and people corrected me immediately. I guess it's a Yorkie. Who knew? I have only had Chihuahuas with short hair, so my knowledge of dog breeds is limited. But I love to paint them all, and this one is taken from a photo by Bill Muck on Artist Reference Photos.
And I did a challenge on Paint My Photo's website using inspiration from Matisse and his Lady with Green Eyes to paint an expressionistic Self Portrait from a photo. Here's me . . .
