dog show

My response to IF topic of "disguise". I was thinking about masks and this morning I walked past some junk and found a book on dogs, so I chopped a few piccies out, with the idea of just a simple collage.

magic hats

Our studio group, Ultimo Project, has a show coming up with The Sydney Fringe Festival, so I decided to paint a version of the digital image done the other day. I found it a challenge, the painting being fairly difficult to achieve a similarity to the original. It has really to go its own way, and the dry brushing worked well.
They are both about A4 in size

I just added one more, with some extra details, in the show it will go

It was hot
It was thirsty
A nearby hydrant....

floating cats

A strange anomaly existed in the cat's backyard, the gravitational field of the earth had become a little distorted, imperfect maybe, causing problems for the 4 legged creatures.

the drongo

This piece was inspired out of my bushwalk in Kakadu National Park, where I walked for 14 days backpacking in the wild, with a group, some of them keen birdwatchers. The spangled drongo does indeed exist, and many of our sightings of this one, as well as others, was where the bird was!
