Mix It Monthly - Theme Pets
Mix It Monthly's theme for this month's art is pets. I have 3 cats, a dog, 2 horses and a goat. I took pictures of all of the inside pets and I liked the one of this cat best because her coloring suited the colors that Conny wanted us to use. This cat's name is Target because that is where I found her. Most of my pets are foundlings. Target was only 3 pounds when I found her and she was very hungry. She is still loves to be outside and I thought that she would look perfect in a garden setting. The background started out with a gelli plate background with leaves but I covered most of that up when I did watercolored over the background. I went back in with a stamp and did some more leaves mixed in with the flowers. Below the drawing is the photo that I took of Target. You cannot tell in the photo but Target is a Calico. I tried to put her pretty jewel colors in the painting even though you cannot see them well in the photo.
I got another photo op this morning and now you can see her pretty colors with this photo!
