7 Cats and a Mouse, 6 Mediums

Been a member for years, always in the watercolor area. This is my first step out of the box. This painting was purely for fun, and inspired by my insomnia! I used 6 mediums (not sure if collage is considered a medium). Acrylic, Watercolor, Airbrush, Encaustic, Collage and Ink. I think I have had a love of cats, Lauren Burch, Brian Andreas and Hallmark forever! Each cat has "Swavorski Elements" and the I would have to say the colors on the original are a little more intense.

Hi Jilanne, and welcome! Do you mean that your cats were each inspired by one of the Swarovski colors, or have you actually embedded crystals in there someplace? I love both the smug and the grumpy cats you've created here!

Re: 7 Cats and a Mouse, 6 Mediums

Each cat was done separately in a different medium. Then they were put on a canvas and outlined in puff paint. The Swavorski crystals are embedded in their eyes, or nose or food dish. And cfo I love the cat on your profile pic. He would have looked good with this grouping!

You should step out of your box more often! This is so fun and whimsical and well designed. Which are the encaustic kitties ( I LOVE encaustics) and what is 'puff' paint? Do more!
