The Eyes Have It

Oil on 5x7 gessoed hardboard.
I first toned the support with red acrylics. Much of the background is the original acrylic toning.
The reference for this painting was supplied by Stacey at WDE.

  1. Yes they do!

    Great job. I find cat's eyes very challenging because they're like a big marble with a pupil that does not stay round.

  2. Beautiful job, Dean! Very nice colors.

  3. Thank you Sheila...absolutely true about the cat's eyes!

  4. Thanks, Edward...I often get in a quandary about just how far to push color. I sometimes enjoy pushing color far from reality...relying mostly on values.

  5. I really fell in love with this cat! Great! What a gift to paint as you do! Greetings from Germany :-)

  6. Hello, Mi! All the way from Germany! Thanks for stopping in and the encouraging words!
