Andrew Kiss Demonstration

On Friday night I enjoyed a wine and cheese event that hosted this famous Artist, He was very meticulous and his tones were right on.

Andrew Kiss. I read on a website that his palette is never the same , well it is the same, the paint has been building up for months and its formed into a small mountain. I think Doug Swinton was already offering to put on ebay.

new pastel

I am working on this as a christmas card design, this kitty is under the tree batting Christmas decorations. I Should be done by tomorrow for the sketch club meeting. They have a printing company who will choose from hundreds of paintings one they would like to put on a card, everyone is invited to bring 5 images. It is unlikely they will chose the cat but it was good motivation to get another piece done!!
