Her masters voice!

EDIT: My dry pic stitched into altered book with black 3mm ribbon :D

Today I have tried another of the FREE classes at Flutterbye .ning :D
This one is with Natasha, who is painting a simple portrait of her cat to add to her altered book. I have a dog...so I copied the style but replaced cat with soppy dog :D
Quick sketch onto gessoed card...
Add main body colour...
built up a bit of background...
added a bit more detail...
and a little more...
and finally some texture(scratching into wet paint, stencil clock faces,dabbing with mucky baby wipe), and shadow(not poop) where she is sitting :D...
just waiting by the front door for hubby to come in :D
I haven't put too much detailed work(door furniture etc) in the background because the dog(Meg) is the focus, and when it is dry I have to stitch it into my book!!!

The door is an irrelevance to Meg, it's what she can hear on the other side that is important to her!
