I took a photo of my cat a few weeks ago and have wanted to make a painting out of it ever since. I had another mini canvas floating around with a painting on it I didn't love. So I gessoed over that and painted my kitty. I'm liking this little gem much better!
This is Shinobi. Acrylic on mini canvas, 2"x2 3/4" on a mini easel. I painted the edges gold. You know, one of these days I either need to buy a professional camera or find a friend who has one to take pictures of my art for me. Looking at the painting sitting right next to me versus looking at this picture, the photo distorts it a bit and the colors aren't quite right. The background blue is brighter than the photo shows. Anyway, enough of my camera problems.
I had done the painting of my friends dog and it made me want to paint my cat. I did this painting today, took me a few hours. I'm so bad at keeping track of my hours on artwork, I really should do that...So I made up the chair he's sitting on, in reality he was sitting on a bench in front of a window and I didn't think that would make a great background for a painting. I'm happy with his little chair. :) And I did the background blue because I wanted to keep it simple and I liked that color blue. Hope you like!
