Break Me Off A Piece Of That Blankety Blank Bar-Cat

Close ups

Oil on 7x5 hardboard.

This is my contribution to this week's DPW Challenge. It was hosted by the fabulous artist, Dreama Tolle Perry. She posted a photo of this cat. It will be great fun to see the many creative versions that are sure to come!
Once again I used the rounds in place of the usual flat brushes. I smooshed the paint on thickly and looked for spots where I could push the color and be a bit creative with it. I loved trying to render that strong sidelight!
All in all, I'm happy with it. Plenty of fun!

  1. It's FABULOUS Dean!! I love it. :) Looks like it was a lot of fun too.

  2. Un regard profond, un regard évidemment très félin qui me ferait trembler si j'étais une petite souris!
    Un très joli portrait que ce minou...
    Gros bisous.

  3. looks like my poofy cat really captured the "poof"! (I haave fur all over this house)!

  4. The way you have used white prominently has created a magic and the look is unmistakeably cute!

  5. Beautiful light and colour!

  6. Absolutely amazing sidelight and how you've achieved that effect in the kitty's fur. Just another beautiful Deano piece!

  7. Wow... you're the one I look to for masterful renderings of god's creatures, great and small.

  8. Beautiful portrait Deano! Very sweet face.

  9. Stellar... Dean you always add a spark of life to your paintings!

  10. Gave me a chuckle ... nice and I love the title.
