The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I like the combination of detailed hair and simple color markings on this one!
I’m going to attempt Inktober this year. October 1st was a bit of a cheat, adding some last details to my goldfish. But here is day two’s ink drawing, an Alaskan Malamute. I’m going to be drawing dogs all month, most likely in alphabetical order. Wish me luck!
I’m not sure if I’ve done any painting quite as relaxing to do as these goldfish. I’m going to miss painting them, but I also feel myself getting anxious for the next phase of this project. And to also get some color in my life instead of all of this black and white!
Just another fish. I feel like I’m hopefully getting to the end of the painting stage for this project, but you never know. There’s a lot more to do, but I’m excited about where it’s going. I have big plans for all these fish!
My eventual plan, like with most of my paintings these days, is to print these goldfish on fabric. That has it’s own challenges, though. This image, for instance, has actually been inversed; the real painting is of a black fish on white paper, with all of his details done in white ink. But it that the most efficient way to plan out what something will look like in print? After doing this, I don’t think so. But it was still a worthwhile experiment!
