Lèche-Vitrines (Window Shopping), Acrylics, 11″ x 14″

In French, “lèche-vitrines” (window shopping) can be translated literally by window licking.. which I think is pretty appropriate in this case (hence the French title!).

It was challenging to paint man made structures like the balcony, the door and the inside. I need to work more on that. I tried to get away from the safety of the airbrush for the background. It’s a big learning curve!

Lovely! I wonder what he's looking at. I too love the lighting on the cat, and you've done a great job of giving the cat a really fluffy look. :)

Thank you Christelle, Shalese, Kay, Lisa and Chammi :)

The light around the cat is really what drew me to paint this scene! Also, it was weird to an animal painting with no eyes..!

Wow, what a lovely cat! Leche in Spanish translates 'milk'.
