|Pangur Bán III by Gallery Juana|
Earlier I posted about my latest series, Pangur Bán. Above is my latest in that series.
My neighbor has a beautiful, grey, tom cat. Our front and back yards are part of his territory, so he often makes himself at home in our yard. He was the inspiration for Pangur Bán III. I started out with green-tinted sumi ink and watercolor for the first layer and added layers of acrylic, black sumi ink, pencil and watercolor to bring it up to a grey hue with subtle differences of color. I drew his collar with watercolor pencil.
As a side note, when I was living in Japan, I purchased a variety of sumi ink in different hues: black, brown, blue, green.
I hope everyone is having a good weekend. I'll be around to visit shortly.
