Covid Creativity: 31Dec2021

by Susan Irving

I managed to get  free from Freddie kitten for 3 hours on a November afternoon and did this watercolour on cheap paper.  I did another one like it a few years ago, but thought I would try it again just to keep in practice.

The wheels are not right, but then I do seem to have problems doing wheels!  However, there was no time to try to correct it as my free time was up at that point and I needed to get it off of the table.

It is from a photo I took in Key West Florida in the 1990’s. I would like to try it in acrylic, but I first need Freddie kitten to be older and more responsible in the studio first.

Two weeks later. Just an update on the truck painting.  I did manage to find another couple of kitten-free hours to fix the wheels a bit and finish it.

  1. I always love your watercolours, Susan! You make it look easy, but I know first hand it is not! Also, I think your wheels look just fine!

    The wheels look fine to me. I would get a cage for the cat. I imagine training them is about as easy as herding them.
