241 - MITCH - DAVE EDWARDS - INK & COLOURED PENCILS - 2008 by 


I thought I’d try that old technique of having the background painted and the subject pen and ink. I’ve often thought of it, but wasn’t sure if it would work. When I was in Barcelona I noticed that both Picasso and Dali had done portraits this way.

If you look at my Profile you will see a little mini gallery of clickable links to my pussycat paintings.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    this is fabulous dave! love the yellow “aura” around the cat……i can appreciate “visualizing” aura as i usually see them too/just excellent!

  • The aura is poetic licence I’m afraid and is the closest the little scamp will ever get to being saintly. We love him though … even though he has just trashed our Christmas tree!

    This innocent little sweetheart you see in my picture has tonight just managed to drag a strip of tinsel up the stairs and was trying to get it up the ladder into my attic study when I caught him. Enroute he was chewing it and the house looks like Santa’s Grotto with all the bits of tinsel. What is worse is that it is one in the morning and I would wake the neighbours if I hoovered, so it will have to wait until tomorrow

    what a wonderful image. :o)

  • I’m always pleased when people compliment my older work, but even more pleased when they compliment something like this, that I only drew yesterday … many thanks.
