Girl with birds and feathers watercolor

A young girl is in a garden environment with a tree, flowers and some exotic and imaginary birds.  This watercolor has been so much fun drawing in pencil and then coloring with my travel watercolor palette.  She just seems to fit this place.
enjoy seeing her on my products.

Here is another zentangle from my collection of pen and ink little drawings that I am digitally drawing and painting to finish them ON THE WACOM.  This one was a real experience because I guess it’s a shock to experience the vivid and true color on the cintiq tablet and  see the paler version  on the internet.  On the web the colors look pale to me.

To say the least I spent many hours on this and I worked it through and reworked it trying to learn how I could have done it easier.

2 cats, best buddies, version 3

cats-bestbuds-charcoal-web

Here is the 3rd and most likely the last version of the 2 cats, best buddies. I have been dreaming about doing charcoal.  This one is on watercolor paper and it had too many peaks and valleys in the texture to be good for vine charcoal.  I now have a charcoal pad and I will be playing more with the medium.

So here are the 3 altogether.  I think it is fascinating to draw and paint the same subject from different points of view.  The background of course was made up on the spot and I got a kick out of doing it.  I love the moon as you can probably tell.  It’s in so much of my art.feline-buddies-web

My Orchid Kitty

cat-orchid-web

This kitty is covered in orchids.  I had orchids sitting in front of me from my patio garden  and I drew the simple outline of kitty, added wings, a little bird and some fun and not so ordinary color palette.  Then I drew abstract fragments of the flowers on his body.  The little bird ended up having one of his wings looking like another bird facing in the opposite direction. a perk from heaven.

The font is Gigi.  I got the color just by going down a few shades darker than the orchid flower on the color wheel.  The whole drawing was done in photoshop with a few simple brushes.  lots of layers: orig. scanned art, outline, coloring, text, and a white layer in there to be able to see what it finally                                                                                            would look like.

I love getting comments.  Let me know what you think: either about this revision series or any comments on the art are appreciated.
