Finally! I am going to do Illustration Friday! I am going to do it faithfully and seriously. Mostly seriously. The speed with which I colored in this doodle may not be considered serious…but I had fun. When I first read the prompt for this week, I wanted to draw that pitiful soaked scowl that a dog gives after a bath. The best I could dig up from that idea was this basset, who makes me laugh but wasn’t the furry soaked creature I was looking for.
The girl from last week’s ‘Safari’ (which I also need to post!) appeared on the page instead. Is this going to be a continuing theme?
Levitating Cat (c) 2011 Sara Boggs for the Daily Paintworks Challenge. 8″x5″ Acrylic on matboard
Because there has to be a photo on the blog to get everything nice and tidy. This was my first try at the Daily Paintworks Challenge. I don’t know much about the site, but read about it on Kimberly Kelly Santini’s blog (one of my new favorites!). It was fun practice! I was worried about sticking like a sore thumb, since this is only my second real acrylic work – or cat for that matter! With that in consideration, I’m pretty happy with the results. The most fun bit was the sgraffito seat!
It is rather fun that this new blog was born on my birthday. Happy birthday, blog!
