Himalayan Cat

 Close ups

Oil on 5x7 canvas panel.
This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas.

There is such a wide variety of cats, and many breeds have very unique appearances.
This Himalayan is pretty captivating.
I applied the paint with brushes, and painting knife, and and put my fingers to work blending when nothing else seemed to do what I wanted.
That's a "fly by the seat of the pants" background....completely invented.

Revelation 7:17       For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; 'He will lead them to springs of living water. 'And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.'


  1. Dean, whatever you did [and used] it worked beautifully. Great painting of the Himalayan!

  2. you are the master of the cat! This one is a real beauty....bravo!

  3. I think he's beautiful, Dean! And the seat of the pants thing is perfect to highlight this beautiful breed.

  4. Thank you, Kathryn. I was at a stage with this one where it seemed nothing would get the effect I was after with the fur. That's where the digits came in.

  5. Celeste...What a great thing to say! Thank you! I always look forward to seeing what you're up to in your active blog!

  6. Thank you, Sherry!I enjoyed the photo of your sis and you and that grape hat you were wearing...Lol!

  7. This is a beautiful cat painting, Dean.! Himalayan cats are so elegant.

  8. Great painting Dean, one can really feel the fluffiness of the cat.

  9. I love the blue nose with the yellow eyes. I feel it is a male cat and he is staring right at me as if he knows me.
    You should finger paint some more!

  10. Absolutely love your Himalayan cat. I've been looking through your paintings and am impressed with your consistency in posting to your blog (something I'm not good with) and your dedication to producing works. Great job.
