First, to answer Natalie's question, yes, for the most part, Tucker is a big ol' sweetie. He used to be quite feisty when he was younger but has mellowed out quite a bit. He still has his moments (I can't have bare feet near him. He's always wanted to bite my big toe for some reason), but he just wants to be near his people and be loved.
Today I have a "lesson" in coloring kitties. Many of you may know that one of my hobbies is rubber stamping. I enjoy coloring in images with Prismacolor pencils. Here, I colored in the first layer of colors in this cute cat image.
Then, I blend the colors with a blending stump and Goo Gone.
I'll add another layer of colors and blend again.
The fun thing about coloring cats is that there are so many color combinations. Here are some others I did with the same image.
I should note that I am NOT a trained artist. I've learned by reading a lot of blogs and remembering the art classes I took in middle school. :-)
