Vote Rats!

The subject of a Vote Rat Party came up on one of my groups and some people expressed an interest in a poster.
Our candidate is D'Niro, owned by my friend Ark.

Dr. Ph. Martin's Hydrus Watercolors

Today I started using these Dr. Martin's Hydrus Watercolors for the first time on the cat/rat circus pieces. How nice. They are liquid which is interesting to use. The colors are so rich. Much better than the cheapo (but good) pan set I've been painting with all this time. The Hydrus was on sale so I got all three sets. :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Albert & Lou, "Center of Attention" ratties at MRR. Watercolor 5"x 5".

New Cirque du Chats et Rats roughs

The person who commissioned the 11"x14" Masquerade Ball wants two Cirque paintings to flank it on either side. I don't usually post work in progress but I did this for myself to see the pair together. I may add something to the upper right hand corner of the right cat to make it balance the left a little better. Both will be 11"x8.5"
