Emerald Eyes - PAINTING by AstridBruning Emerald Eyes - PAINTING by AstridBruning
8 x 11 inch Goauche with a few pastel pencil highlights in the fur. I also started with pens and there are some gold gel pen lines visible.

Painted on decorative paper, another experiment to see how the paper holds up, glued it to mat board to stop it wrinkling. Originally tried pastels but not enough tooth. May try using a clear Colourfix primer first next time to give it some tooth.

There is a lot of gold on the paper so it was difficult to photograph, after numerous shots this is the better one.

when the paintings are small thumbs they look like photographs so I had to add "painting" in the title :icontruesmiles:

thanks for the Wow, but I cannot take all the credit, as the cat is painted on decorative paper. I have been experimenting using different surfaces like fabric, aluminium, wallpaper etc., it is still a challenge integrating the image with the design and the surface itself. :iconcatdanceplz::iconleartistplz:
