gouache on sketchbook paper
(edited as best as I can in Photoshop to match the original painting)
I've been inspired to get back into painting by YouTube art vloggers Leilani Joy and, more recently, Lena Danya. I LOVE watching their speed painting videos more than others because of how they explain their thought process behind their art (btw, please leave a comment below if you know of other YouTube art vloggers who also like to do the same).
The idea for this was influenced by the rare, wonderfully cold weather we've been having in Manila, and how our cat likes to curl up in a fluffy warm ball as she sleeps. The painting took much longer to make than expected, but was a lot of fun to do nonetheless. I think I want to get into more traditional, hand-made art this year.
