Why should the cats have all the fun? Following up on yesterdays drawing. Painted in Procreate app on iPad with Sensu brush.
I was working on dinner and saw this little bird just outside the window and sketched in SketchTime on my iPhone.
Gloria had torn out a page from somewhere of an James Audubon painting. I used that as reference for todays painting.
I used the painting from the previous day and redid it in ArtRage with their fab oil brush. I like the looseness and limited colors.
It has been a while since I used Brushes, an iPad app of some note (New Yorker covers have been drawn by Joe Colombo using it). Newly updated I was giving it a spin yesterday. ACL has commenced here in Austin. Lots of little birds singing…

Another painting from objects around the house. Above our kitchen counter we have a bluebird made of wood. I painted over a panel and left parts remaining... I’m considering taking some sandpaper to it. / Painted Over

Our cat Izze got another warbler this morning. A beautiful little bird, with ferocious claws I might add. I sat in the courtyard with the bird on a piece of cardboard and painted. There was quite a bit of bird song going on around me, and I thought, that may not be song but ticked off birdies planning a full on assault on me, the human with their dead buddy next to him. I’m still alive.

One of our cat’s is quite a hunter (sadly). She brought a lovely little bird this morning. Gloria suggested I paint, she said it is called, Memento mori–a common classical theme in painting. So, I tried and frankly, felt sad the whole darn time. I mean, if your gonna kill it, eat it.
