A New Medium in Art

I have not updated you for some time on my art (or much else for that matter).  Sigh.  I talk to you in my head often but do not let it flow to the keyboard as often as I want. But, today, here I am. I have almost finished the paintings of the cats.  I have gotten a bit burned out on them so have not finished.  I have started a still life that has captured my attention.  I will let you see it on another day. Today, I attended the Colored Pencil Society meeting in Cincinnati.  As part of the meeting, there was a demonstration of Scratch Board art paired with colored pencil.  We all started a Scratch Board project.  I was not sure I would enjoy the process but was feeling that I am ready to try something new.  (Maybe it is the burn out from the cat paintings…).  Anyway I brought the needed materials and began a project. Since I did not put a lot of effort into finding a reference photo but wanted it to be one of my own photos, I chose another cat picture.  duh.  You would think that being burned out would be a hint to me but I seem to be a slow learner.  I just knew that it needed to be a reference with a lot of lines.  Fur is line, isn’t it? Okay.  So here is the progress on the projects. allie final edit  This one is finished.  I think. vg3 edit This one is not finished.  Getting closer but work to do. And, today, after my first try at Scratch Board… scratchboard allie 1 edit
