Sunday Sketches and cards

This week has been about watercolour and digital work. The above trio of pears is in watercolour, quite detailed for me. I love painting fruit especially pears and apples.

I also love painting flowers in watercolour and decided to get a start on my Xmas cards. I noticed when I was looking at PPF posts quite a number are on the same track.  This work is of poinsettias, a popular Xmas flower in NZ. I noticed they are starting to appear in the shops already!

I always send my cat lover friends a photo of my cat “Bro” at Xmas, here is this year's effort. After I draped the holly around his neck he posed then attacked it with vigour and bits of metal leaves are now scattered all over the house.
 

I have been working on a series of cards of Bro done on Freehand and Photoshop for a while and decided to test the waters by sending some friends this one if him in his Xmas dress.

That's it for this week, have a great time creating wonderful art and hope to see you next week.

  2. Love the pears, the look fantastic. I love Poinsettias at Christmas. It's traditional and traditional that the poor things die after Christmas. I did keep one for years, then moved house and it died. Your cat looks lovely, funny he attacked the garland. Maybe he's just not in the Christmas mood yet... Happy SS :)
