April Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Kitchen Morning

I started out with Mewsette and just kept going. All that beautiful cool light with the warm-toned Mewsette bathing in the center, it just didn’t look finished until I added the surrounding scene. This is oil pastel, but I think I moved over to my soft pastel style for parts of this. Well, that’s okay, and probably because I have been working on a few other pastel works. It’s really the color that counts.

That and the cat hairs embedded into it.

One of my goals for this year was more new artwork. I’m happy to have two cat paintings done, but March was unexpectedly busy in non-art ways and I did not get the new painting done I’d planned. I realized that at least one of the ones I’d planned was an oil pastel, and a kitchen scene, so I decided to fall back on this little sketch I’d been intending to use as a springtime feature for years.
