Oh my it’s been a week already since my last blog post! Another hectic few days as I needed to tidy up some rooms to make way for getting box windows to get installed in the attic next week. Plus I continued unpacking all my moving boxes and just opened my last one during the weekend! Now can relax a bit more and focus on my hobbies again as well as things I have been putting off. Today I’m going to write and share the next part of a kawaii creation from Tracy Verdugo’s Story Painting class!
Medley of Kitties
In my last post, I wrote about a painting of cats in Medley of Kitties. In that painting I sketched a variety of cats referring to some photos from the past I had taken on my phone. And what challenge but fun that was!
With the painting done on a sketchbook, the page preceding it was deliberately left blank. That blank page was for painting and creating windows for the kitties. First I made a draft in pencil by closely tracing where each cats were located. Then the pen drawing, painting and cutting followed by carefully using a cutter. I thought it would be a cute idea to make it all fancy with a pink wall background with the doors in Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold and Antelope Brown. All acrylic ink.
Then I went a step further and decided to embellish the widows with some sparkles! Glitter glue and Nuvo Drops were used here as well as some 3D Liner by Sennelier. How pretty!
Peek a Boo!
I was careful opening the little windows. And once done, I was pleased to find that they were strategically placed so the kitties are well visible. And they look so sweet as they get a bit of a peek through the windows!
This assignment was so much fun! Firstly I had the challenge to go beyond my comfort zone with sketching a wide variety of cats using a range of mediums. Then I was able to create something different from my usual stuff like making windows for my kitties. This is something that would come handy when say I want to make greeting cards. I can hardly wait to go further with Tracy’s classes!
