Practice Pieces

" The Pears"


"Old Blue Eyes"

I painted these today in Pat's class. Not every painting has to be matted and framed - I did these because I needed the practice! The pears were from a book by Brigit O'Connor, and I took the kitty from a photo on Wet Canvas. We won't have class for the next 2 weeks! I hope I can make myself paint.

Love the painting of the pears. I have been trying watercolour and struggling so I like this even more.

Both are gorgeous pieces, Nancy. Love the primary color palette in the pear painting and that sure is one gorgeous cat!!
