I was asked last week to make a custom pendant for a friend. She already had one pendant I had made for her, and she wished to have a specific image. She wanted a Cougar. Since I didn’t have that image to work with already….I decided to draw it myself and use my artistic abilities to give her the Cougar she wanted. I tossed around a few ideas of using colored pencils, or doing an ink drawing…but I wasn’t sold on anything. Then I had an epiphany…watercolor! And so began my project this weekend.
I started out by buying new watercolors, lol…..for one really big reason…it had been so long since I had used my set, that I couldn’t find them! Which it’s been probably longer since I’ve bought paint (watercolor, acrylic, or oil), and was surprised by all the watercolor options! I decided on a small set, and headed back home.
And started to paint…..
I was super excited as it started to come to life, because pencil and pen hadn’t done the Cougar justice.
I wish I could have gotten the whole image on the pendant…and I thought very seriously about it. But it would have made a rather large pendant, lol. My friend had wanted the dual strands of black and silver beads from the Tiger Pendant Necklace. This is the final piece all put together:
She was pleased beyond words with the end product, and so was I 🙂
Since completing this pendant this weekend, I’ve had requests for a wolf, dolphin, and a palm tree/beach scene….I’m currently taking custom orders…send me an email or comment on here if you have a request!!
