Well what a busy weekend!
Had my mother-in-law, Pauline, with us for the weekend as she is moving from Luton up to Rushden into an assisted living apartment – a big upheaval for an 80 year old!
Anyway, we toddled off to the Hollowell Steam Rally and Heavy Horse show, mainly because she adores horses and also because I wanted to photo’s of them. Let me tell you, pushing a wheelchair up and down those hills gives you muscles on muscles. I could have a rant (as my friend Sue would say in her blog) here about the number of people who moaned about the fact that we had taken a wheelchair to the event! But I was a good girl and just thought at them that they should be grateful that they don’t have to use one.
Heres a (rather grainy) shot of Shadow – I have tweaked the colour of his eyes a little as they were a little too green before.
When you look at the group shot you can see that there’s now a difference between Spirit and Shadow. Still need a little more work, but that will come once I have all the cats finished.
I started adding more body colour to Inca and defining the markings on his head, then strengthening the darks.
As will all the others, I started with the eyes, then added the under colour before moving on to defining the markings. I need to sort through my reference shots now to find a good shot of her tail. She was unhelpfully sitting on it when Tracey took this body shot – who would work with animals eh? ;0)
I definately want to place a toy in that space between her and Spirit as she has that mischeivious look in her eye! So while you look at the group shot so far, I’m off to raid Amber’s toy basket!
Next update planned for Tues or Wed.
See you soon
Take care Jilly x
