So I decided to do a series of paintings to sell, as I'm a little bit low on money. I decided on ragdolls, as I have a ragdoll cat right here, and it was a good excuse to do some feline studies- I must get a cat skeleton when we have a bigger place... I've sold one of these paintings, the blue one- I'm hoping that I sell some more. I've done them as mixed media, with ink, graphite, coloured pencils and watercolour.

This was, originally drawn on A2 (even though my poor little scanner is only A3 :-( ). I want to draw bigger!

Designed with Adobe Illustrator- I think I've (for the most part) got the hang of the pen tool; it took a few sessions of seriously fiddling around, but you know, I think I'm there. Of course, everything can be improved (and I intend to have many more fiddling around sessions during spare time), but I think that I'm happy with this. It helps to have more graphic looking images in my folio- I hope that I get the chance to design some logos!

the topic this week is 'Path', I've chosen to illustrate hopscotch, and I've set myself the challenge of using cheap copier paper, as this will take less punishment in the way of an eraser. Since I can rub out a lot less I either have to select what I want to disappear very carefully, or 'celebrate' my mistakes, as it were. Back in art college one tutor kept on mentioning this. Maybe I'll go back to it and produce a coloured version if I have time before Friday.

Finished highland cow portrait; I think that this one was Lady Alma. If memory serves, they named her after a character from Downtown Abby. If you need a fun (and FREE) day out, take a trip to Pollock park and watch them wash a cow.
