Oil on 5x7 hardboard.
The reference photo for this painting was supplied by Kat for this week's WDE.
All the design elements in this picture appealed to me. The background color, chairs, cat, flowers and foliage all seemed to work together.
The support was first coated with black gesso. It then received a thin layer of acrylic pthalo blue to darken it further. I tried to maintain as much freshness in the brush work as possible. To finish up, the thickest, most textured strokes were placed in and around the area of the center of interest...the cat's face.
I enjoyed doing this one. Perhaps all the more because I felt had overworked the previous painting posted.
