Hi there, happy Mothers Day every one.
This was the card I painted for mum this year. It is based on an old Inktober drawing from 2020.
I’ve tried several times to make a coloured version and so far this is the one I like best.
Its difficult to get vibrant reds with watercolour (I’m probably using the wrong colours) so it’s mixed media on watercolour paper; watercolour for the background, ink brush pens for the poppies and Indian ink for the cat.
Below you can see the original in black and grey ink drawn on smooth cartridge paper.
It was drawn as part of the 2020 inktober challenge. This was a good year for ideas and I’ve used many of the ideas from this year for cards.
Sending best wishes to all mums everywhere whether it’s an official day or not.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. Till next time, have fun

Nice painting, I really like the contrast between the black cat and red poppies. Also I find it a very interesting composition. Your eye is led from the poppy on the left, through the cat, and out to the poppy on the right. Keep up the good work!!
