I went to see Kathy's show a couple weeks ago and was inspired to try out painting on cardboard like she does, as well as on other found materials around my home.
I recently had some deliveries so was not in shortage of cardboard. I also found small packaging boxes in my recycle bin to use. I first read about pangolins in a National Geographic magazine and then learned on a visit to Kadoorie Farm that they can be found in Hong Kong. They're covered in scales and can curl up into a ball.
The pangolin I painted from a reference photo and the ninja racoon is from my imagination. I started with an outline, filled in the shape, and when the layer was dry, went over with details using a thinner brush. I quite like the texture of the brown cardboard box behind the pangolin.
Kathy's show is up for a few more days at Kubrick in Yau Ma Tei. Catch it before it closes on Saturday, September 30.
