Eye See You-Cat

Close ups

Oil on 6x6 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Lin was the gracious hostess. Thanks for the great reference of your cat, Dave.Link
The title "Eye See You" of course refers to the beautiful cat eyes.
My objective today was to push expressive color. Below is how the painting started. It was really blah and boring. That's what made me decide to push the color and add some shadows.

  8. Pushing the color really did make a huge difference; love the result as I told you on WC but I'm glad I popped over here and saw what prompted the push.
