I may paint Bast at some point, but now I'm focusing on those demi-gods, the mortal cat. I am particularly fond of orange tabbies, so here's my latest painting:
|Worship is Not Optional, 8x10", ink & watercolor|
But watercolor is easy to start and easy to clean up after. I also got this cool refilling water bowl, the Rinse Well, which saves me from having to continually go after clean water. I'm mobility impaired and prone to fatigue, so anything that make it easier is a plus. The Rinse Well has been a tremendous help. Brushes lay flat in the water. I can leave it on my desk and just start painting when the mood strikes and I have the time.
I've also enjoyed experimenting with water based ink and seeing it feather in water and reveal subtle grays.
This morning I saw the most interesting crack in the side walk. It looked like a clenched hand and an upturned face with a flower growing out of forehead. I sketched it. I decided to try an ink and wash painting, really letting the paint flow. Here is the result of that:
|Breakthrough, 7x10", ink and watercolor|
These paintings are for sale at my Etsy Shop. (Breakthrough has sold :)
