Tuxedo Cat Painting – Mike


Hi Matt,

This one is an oil painting of my cat, Ella. It’s about 9×10″.

I don’t paint in oils very often, so I’m not terribly confident. Tried to keep in mind the same things I would with a drawing – values and edge control, etc – and I used a limited palette of black, white, yellow ochre, burnt sienna and cerulean blue. I mainly wanted to limit the colour and mostly focus on warms and cools.

Not great reference but I liked the edge light/backlight on the chin and whiskers.

Thanks for taking a look!
