Well, tonight we had Critter Nite over on VPON. Sooz hosted and it was me and Piper there to paint along with her. Christie joined us for a bit, but just to watch and chat.


I'll be back in a minute with my painting...

I am working on a montage of my six pets. Tonight I did Abner, My Basset Hound/Labrador cross. I may do some more work on him as I fo, but this is him to this point.

The whole piece will be 16 X 20 on a burgundy suede board.


I hope Piper and Sooz pop by to show of their beautiful paintings. :clap:

Here is my work for tonight. I did not have time to get a critter started so I worked on a cactus flower that I had been started. We decided that cacti are critters in themselves.
I had already finished the flowers and worked mostly on the stems tonight, this is still very much a WIP.

9 by 12 Art Spectrum Colourfix paper..not sure what color it is, somewhat like a voilet color

I really enjoyed myself and hope that others will join in, it is nice to paint with someone

Aubergine, if I'm not mistaken....one of my fave colourfix colours!

I love your porcu...er Cactus, Piper.

Tonight was alot of fun. I am looking forward to many more virtual paintouts!!!

Y'all did GREAT! Love that cactus, Piper and I've already applauded Abbers over in sketch. So here's my fun for the evening.

Sooz- he is so cute...
well, girls, I had a blast tonight. I was thinking that if I did not join you all on the paint out I might have just watched nothing on TV, my time was much better spent.

Cori- think you are correct about the color of the background. I am liking working on that type of paper.

I will have a "real" critter ready for next week

So I have my idea for the next paintout I'll host - a Friday Sketch night. It won't be this Firday, though - it will be Sept 9. I can't seemt o book it on the Calendar from here, but I will do so as soon as I can...

Looks like you guys had a good time - Cori, your pet project got a great start! Piper, I love the start on the cactus - let's see your finish when you get done. Sooz, I love pigs! and he is a cutie. Reminds me of the pig in Charlotte's Web.

Sweet. I like the burgundy suede board idea. Looks like Abner, i've seen him in real life ;)

Hi Em!!! :wave:

That's what Lorna said too, when she saw it. And It was done from a picture I took the day we painted together out by her place.

There we go - I scheduled a sketch night for next friday evening (Sept 9). Gives us all a chance to work from life (or imagination, i suppose)
