I've not been painting or drawing for ages and it's really hard to get started again, but I've been doing some illustration work for the local Humane Society lately (designing T-shirts), and they asked me to make them a picture of two kittens to use in an adoption campaign, so I set to it.

This is the result, which I guess is passable  Smiley Aquarelle painting.

(Of course my boyfriend thinks the fluffy kitty in the back is trying to put the moves on the tabby in front... *lol*)

Being on a kitty-painting roll, I deccided to try painting something to use for an Xmas card this year too, and ended up with this which I feel quite happy with. Kind of a stylized white kitty with a bell on her tail (and a small head - I know..) Aquarelle painting touched up in PhotoShop (mainly fading the edges) and printed on heavy paper. I used a transparent glitter pen to add some highlights, but it doesn't really show up in the scan. Gave it a bit of a festive feel however  Smiley

These are great Smiley I'm jealous, I wish I could draw cats that well.

I love them. I don't think they are passable at all.  I thought they were perfect.
