Daily Sketch: Update on Two Cats After van Gogh

revised oil pastel sketch

I looked at yesterday’s little sketch at my desk and decided that if I was to truly create homage to van Gogh, I needed to have a background for these two to exist within, especially that lovely cerulean blue and turquoise van Gogh often used, and lots of little sketch lines and areas. I covered up yesterday’s signature so I scraped my name into the oil pastel in the lower left as Vincent often did in his paint. Ah, this has been too much fun.

  1. […] Read more about Two Cats After van Gogh from the day I posted it. The weathered white frame is nice for small colorful works as well. I had spent some time playing around with customizing mat boards and wide wooden unfinished frames to coordinate with these three works, above, but no matter what I did it just overwhelmed the works. I decided to let them speak for themselves, and these simple frames to do that with just the addition of complementary, unpatterned mats. […]

    I am a fan of the “Impressionist”. I wish I could see the picture first hand to enjoy the layers and colors! I love your pictures and photo’s of your kitties! Thanks for sharing your cats with us!

      Laurie, for some reason when I place the image in the post it’s a little blurry–certainly not as sharp as what I saw in Photoshop when I was cropping and touching up. If you click on it to get the large version, you can see surprisingly a lot more, though still not as much as there is in the original, which is right here at my desk…
