This is what is known as a “paintbomb”, kind of like a “photobomb”. Mimi did this to me last week but I did not paint her. When Jelly Bean decided to join the still life I was sketching, I decided to stop the other painting and sketch Bean. I was using oil pastels, so oil pastels it was. The paper was a little small for all the detail that’s in it, but that makes me keep it pretty simple, and all the tiny details I’d been visualizing just didn’t work. Too bad for me. Lots of color in an overcast winter day, and lots of color in a black cat, and that’s what counts.
I’m so pleased this little sketch is popular! I liked it as soon as I finished it, and I’ve reproduced it as a digital print, giclee, canvas and mousepad, and am about to try a few other things. Read more below.
