Kelso & Midgee
11" X 14"
This piece isn't complete, but I have bigger fish to fry today, so I'm off to the studio to work on some monotypes and mixed media pieces. Perhaps I will work back into this later.
Note: If you think, the larger cat only has three legs, you would be correct. He DOES only have three legs in real life. ;)
Last night, I decided to rework my ink painting. I think I captured the details of the cats much better, even if I lost the fresh white outlines. They served their purpose keeping the background and the cats somewhat separate early in the process. I fixed some areas where the shapes were wrong. I didn't think I would be able to make the ink stripe, but I think that worked out pretty well on both the kitten (Midgee) and the larger cat (Kelso).
I started thinking that perhaps what bothers me about the painting isn't the "painting" at all, but the composition. What do YOU think? Here is a slightly rotated/cropped version.
