A cat sits in a celtic knotwork quilt. She is a familiar to Danu, the first fairy.
Lovely, specially the celtic knots.
I love cats, I love Celtic Lore, and I love faeries. I look at this artwork and it amazes me. It feels as if I am actually seeing the language of the feline in reguards to it's surronding and the mood of the room. Great work!
Oh, thank you for the quilt comment! I had taken a photo of my cat on a different quilt, with suns and moons on it, but wanted to do a drawing with a knotwork quilt. Have you ever tried to find a knotwork quilt in real-life? Impossible! So I was a little worried that the quilt might not look as realistic as it could, since I had to draw all the knots, and make sure they looked like they followed the curves of the fabric. Thanks for making me feel that I actually achieved that goal of realism!
What it really required was a sacrificial colored pencil.
I swear, I used up a little more than half of a brand-new blue colored pencil on this. The board that I used just ate it up, and so did the pencil sharpener, since you need to keep the point really sharp to get a good finished picture.
It is a beautiful painting. The fur is outstanding and the quilt looks so realistic, too!
Fantastic. Love the attention to detail in the fur and the knotwork. All of it must have required super patience. Congrats.
This is done so well, great sense of realism!
Stunning work, Michelle! the cat is brilliant, the realism you have achieved here is outstanding!
