Cat – Day 18 of 30 in 30

My first cat (lions and tigers don’t count).    I’ve shied away from cats as fur is HARD and I’ve also seen a lot of really bad cat paintings which puts me off.   But I think this one has turned out rather well.   This is mainly ultramarine and burnt sienna with just a dash of cad orange for the eye and alizarin for the nose.

  1. This is wonderful! Looks like my cat, whom I've often thought of painting, but resisted for all of the above reasons. Maybe I'll try it one of these days. Very lovely painting!

  2. I agree about bad cat paintings, but here you've got the essence — and the attitude! Captured wonderfully! I hope you are encouraged by this. I'd call it a success!
