Yesterday, Day 1 at the Sourwood Festival in Black Mountain, I did a pencil drawing of a darling tabby kitten. Today I took my oil paints with me, used the same reference photo, and painted a color version of the same tabby.
Painting on site did seem to draw more people to our booth, but sadly, there were no sales. I was able to wander around the show some this afternoon, and had a chance to speak to several of the other artists It seemed that they were all in the same predicament... lots of lookers but no buyers.
I still have some final refining to do on "Sweet Kitty 2" but he is nearly completed.
