Illustration Friday: Similar


                                             ©Deborah Melmon

I created the ice-skating kitty a couple of weeks ago as a similar piece of art to go with the ice-skating dog for a potential client. Both animals were painted in watercolor. Backgrounds are digital. It was a good thing I did the art separately as I had to play around with the composition several times, enlarging the animals and creating a series of borders to go with both pieces. 

These pieces definately put me in a holiday mood. Christmas is right around the corner, right?

You changed your blog's background color, I kind of miss the warmer yellow orange from before. ;o)
But I know, change is fun. I like to change things from time to time.
