My first feline painting! Kitty Cat


My first feline painting!  I had planned to start a series of cat paintings, but was always working on other subjects. Now that the cat is finished, I want to paint more of them, maybe a panther or tiger?

I  painted 'Kitty Cat' in acrylics on a hand stretched 12x12 inch gallery wrap canvas. The piece was a commission with the only request by the customer, was to have  'slate blue' in the back ground.  It worked out well with the black and whites of the cat.  I embellished the background with some pink to  match the ears and nose. The black markings on the head were easy, but the shades of whites to give the body and fur shape, took some work.  Hope you like it.

Merry Christmas,
