Having a Portrait of Whiskers Done
I'm so excited! I've commissioned a portrait of my Siamese cat, Whiskers, who sadly had to be put down on September 1st. He would have been 20 in November, so he lived a good, long life.
One of my running friends is also a very talented artist. She is creating the portrait based upon the photo to the left.
You can check out the sketch that she has done of Whiskers here, and then the first layer of colour here. You can also read her comments on the process.
I can't wait to see the next step in the process!
While you're visiting her site, check out her other art. She does absolutely beautiful work. She paints a lot of ACEO (ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals.) If you want to read more about ACEO, you can do so on her site. The nice thing about ACEO is that they are small and fairly inexpensive. So if you enjoy art, it is a great way to start and develop a collection.
If you have any interest in art, be sure to check out her site.
