cutey - a cat in action

As you can see... I've found a lot of colors in this magnificent face. Photograph curtesy of someone in the reference image library.

C&C please.

Re: cutey - a cat in action

Thanks Sandy - after looking at it again I can see the flaws... think I may go back and do some more on it later.

Barb (happy cat)

Another one for the Open Studios show... I hope there are lots of cat lovers who show up.

Re: cutey - a cat in action

He's right next to the bowl that says 'tuna breath.' (There's your title!)

Love this one!!!!! The colors are jazzy yet very believable. Maybe just a few quick whiskers on the non-tongue side...? Not desperately necessary--just the kind of thing that can add panache...

Re: cutey - a cat in action

Hurrah - Tuna Breath it is!!! That works nicely!!!

I agree about the non-tongue whiskers and knew it was the place needing the attention.

Kate - thanks so much. I was actually dancing around the room while painting - was having far too much fun!!!

Re: cutey - a cat in action

Oh Barb, this guy is so real and lively, I'm beginning to wheeze! I can see the fun you had with this piece. It is bright, energetic and full of fun. Definitely a candidate for Open Studio.

Re: cutey - a cat in action

Beat me to it! I have downloaded this photo to work with, I love it to bits! Now I have your rendering to give me pointers.............

You have inspired me to have a bash at a few kitties for an art fair I am doing in October ... mostly, I am taking my prints, but thought I would include just a few furry friends, funny ones like this one, and the upside-down one, and I found one under a blanket. I've done a few cats in the past, just for myself, my own cats, and then did a commission ... am rather liking painting furries, I love them so.

Tho I have a love/dislike relationship with Sasha, my present cat, who is SO stand-offish, you wouldn't believe it.

Deborah...your remark made me laugh...I had a cat with the most awful cat breath, once. Gorgeous loving creature, you had to forgive him. Provided his face wasn't within an inch of yours.

Gorgeous pic, Barb.
