It's not easy being a one woman show. I am not complaining, it is the best job ever. But sometimes you just can't keep up with it all! I was working on two shows simultaneously which was a bit overwhelming. Both shows came together beautifully for which I am very happy and grateful.
Here is a quick sketch of the day I did while in the whirlwind of deadlines. Since I was doing a lot of multi-media I decided to pull out my oil pastels. It is actually my grandmothers set of pastels that was handed down to me. I am not skilled at oil pastels but it is always a good exercise to try something different. This is on a toned paper which adds warmth to the image. I layered color leaving the brightest areas on the cats head. I need some work to figure out the blending but it was a fun little sketch.
