I love all animals, especially cats if you didn’t know that already. This painting is of Cleo, a beautiful black cat with the bluest eyes. I have a blue eyed kitty too named Storm, he is white and part Rag Doll I think. The most layed back cat I’ve ever had, hardly meows, sleeps with his mouth open, loves belly pats and you can pick him up like a baby! I always say he is too pretty to be a boy kitty but don’t let that fool you, he is infact a warrior! Hehe
So I’ve been wanting to do time lapse videos for a long time, I’ve never had much time to do so before when I was always busy tattooing, fine art didn’t happen alot. Now that I am back into my fine art again I thought I would start doing them. So I’ve had the camera fall on my head a couple of times and several times it hasn’t been recording when I thought it was, so I am still finding my feet with it and hope to improve in the future.
Here is a couple of photos of the progress of Cleo …
I have used Faber Castell Pitts, CarbOthellos and Caran d’Ache pastel pencils on A4 Colourfix smooth
Final artwork below, but first I want to share a video time lapse of Cleo, there are some bits that aren’t there due to camera not recording when I thought it was but you can see her develop…
I hope to do more of these types of videos in the future. Below is a photo of the final artwork, photo reference used from Jacky Werner of her beautiful kitty Cleo…
I’ve recently finished a portrait of Dozer, a blueheeler who is now at rest. I’ve used Faber Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils and CarbOthello Pastel Pencils on A3 Colourfix smooth, 300gsm. Here are some progress photos from start to finish ….
Below is a short hyperlapse video of working on Dozers paw. I would love to do some more videos in the future, perhaps I will learn how to do them a bit better as I feel my light was too bright for this one
And here is the final artwork of ‘Dozer’ …
A new painting of Nimoy in pastel pencils. I have such a great photo to work from, such a cute puppy! I’ve used Faber Castell Pitts and CarbOthello pastel pencils. Here are some photos of the stages ….
And the final artwork of the handsome Nimoy…. 🙂
Final artwork of Lilly, 9×12 inches on coloured pastel paper…
Some more progress on Lilly, really enjoying the pastels!
Chipping away at it whenever I can find some time, more to come soon!
I had forgotten how much I truly love creating with pastels. Back when I started to really get into portrait painting all I ever used was pastels – for years! To pick them back up again has re-ignited my love for them!
I’m working on a portrait of Lilly, beautiful kitty! Utilising a photo by Bananenbrot. Here are my beginnings – using Faber Castell Pitt Pastel pencils and CarbOthello pastel pencils, more to come soon . . . .
I made these little shoes with a 3.5mm hook and 4ply cotton, from a free pattern by Hayley Missingham. Super cute! Some little bows added to sweeten them up some more 😉
