The Moon is full and the cats gather in the magical Forest of Felines to discuss vital kitty business. On the agenda this night are the serious topics of where the best sunny spots can be found, the pros and cons of dried cat food and how to get those pesky pet collars off.
I really had fun doing this one using an accidental mix of colour pencil, a few bits of watercolour, more watercolour, because I liked how it looked, some extra pencil followed by several dabbings of pen and ink. I had intended it to be entirely done with colour pencil but as usual I change my mind part way through and fiddle about until I end up with a mash of all different mediums. (Have I use the right word there? I mean different types of paint, pencil etc, not someone channelling mysterious ghostly messages from beyond the Veil…)
There’s a couple of new postcards available at Ye Olde Yellow Phonebox Etsy shop!
The first is called ‘Acorns’ and the other I’ve named ‘Small Guinea Pig, Big World’. They are printed from original pictures by myself.
‘Acorns’ was mainly done in Colour Pencil with a PanPastel background, while our piggy was mostly in watercolour.
Both are available in other forms too, such as A4 prints, A3 posters, Tea Cosy, Greeting Cards… Well, maybe not a tea cosy but I’m sure that could be arranged.
I’ve had these printed at a different printer to see how they would look, and I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out. Although they don’t have the rounded corners of previous postcards, they still look nice (IMHO).
