Hi all, today I am back with a new watercolor painting. I decided to participate in a drawing/painting challenge over on Instagram to further improve my skill. The theme for this week is TOTEM ANIMAL. To be honest, I have never heard of the phrase before. Upon googling here is what I found:
A totem is a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol of a tribe, clan, family or individual. Some Native American tribe’s tradition provides that each person is connected with nine different animals that will accompany him or her through life, acting as guides. ~ Legends of America
Interesting! Even though my tribe is animist this is the first time I heard this concept. I chose a cat for today’s painting. According to Legends of America website, a cat signifies “guardianship, detachment, sensuality, mystery, magic, independence, astute, watchful”. Well, it’s good to know 🙂
The painting is pretty straightforward. I chose monochrome colors for this painting because I want to learn to limit myself to as little colors as possible. I am known for someone who likes to use as many colors as possible in my art LOL. Sometimes, it’s good to be minimalist!
A couple of progress photos:
By the way, I have uploaded my yesterday’s painting, the koi, to my Redbubble shop. Here are some sample products. I love the baby onesies 🙂
