Painting of the Week: Kitties

Lynn + Pumpkin

Here's a commission I recently completed, a painting of a very cute cat named Pumpkin (the orange cat pictured above). I was originally only going to paint Pumpkin, but when I got the reference photos there was a shot of the black cat Lynn in front of an aloe plant. I decided it would be nice if I painted them both and introduced a more interesting composition that just reproducing a photograph- I got permission for the sketch and went ahead to the finish. The painting went very easily and everything went according to plan. I wish all my paintings could go as smoothly as this one, maybe it would if I only ever painted kittens.

I'm considering it.
