View Full Version : Wde March 20 - Amused Cat, Still Life

Thank you for the great images....

I've been working on 3 paintings in stages for a few days now so I have no idea how long I took doing these - probably 1 and 1/2 hours I would guesstimate for each but no more than 2 hours.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/24-Mar-2019/119105-AMUSED_CAT_copy.jpgI did the kitty by putting in a beige background, and then worked an opaque white over it and greys/black which I made with emerald green and burgundy mix.

What a look on the kitten's face...trying to get the courage up to attempt the stairs! It's wonderful! Great colours in the fur too! Those grapes are luminous and the pears against the dark background just sing! Really nice work!

You have been busy, Bunny! I love the feline, he looks so sweet and kittenish. Thanks for describing your process -- makes for nice subtle colorations, lovely fur, facial expression, and foreground/background. :cat:

The first still life is really stunning. Those wonderful rich colors are a delight. I could reach out and take a bite from one of those pears. Love those yummy grapes and patterns on the bowl. :thumbsup:

I usually try to go back several years when I use photos from the RIL, so as (hopefully) not to repeat from recent WDEs, but evidently not far enough for long-timers like you and Maureen. :lol: Your painting of the apples and pot is stunning! I'm so glad you posted it!

Look at that cute but confused little face! Love it

Fantastic work on the still life’s,
I often come across images I have done before and then realize how long I have been on WC

Cute kitty and lovely fruit, which looks so delicious it's making me hungry! :lol:

Good sketches. Nice colours in the furry little person and the light on those grapes is well captured. The apples study is solid, a great subject.

Lovely work on all three - the kitten really engages with the viewer - not directly as in eye contact, but because I want to know what it's curious about!:lol:

Beautiful work here. I love the background colour of the Kitten and how you made him so cuddly with depicting his fur. The blue on the still life wrapped around its subjects is also very nice, I like the reflections as well. I can understand how your apples sold very easily. It has winner written all over it. Thank you for showing us and sharing.
