I can pretty much always count on two things when it comes to painting.
1. It will take longer than I think it will. (amiright?)
2. I will ALWAYS choose the subject with the most beautiful light.
This kitty was gorgeously backlit, making her ears just glow and causing beautiful catchlights in her eyes. I thought I heard angels singing when I saw the light but it might have been me. ;)
Something I learned with this painting is to make sure and paint in colorful areas first so they don't get muddied by the surrounding darks. I think I have heard Carol Marine refer to this as her 'island to ocean' technique.
Fell a bit behind with painting a single painting every day for September, but that's just life and I'm not beating myself up over it. I actually enjoy it more when I split the painting up over two days. . . at least at this size.
Have a good night everyone! I'll be visiting blogs tomorrow! HUGZZZ, Crystal
