Portrait of Ari Cat!



ACEO Portrait of Ari Cat (Oils) dried fast after yesterday's varnishing, so I scanned it and listed it for auction. It came out great. I love how his paws look so soft turned in toward each other the way he sits sometimes. He did pose for this when I did the original sketch, held still for a significant amount of time to let me get it right on the canvas board. I did most of the painting watching him in different positions but getting his markings and coloration right. The last thing I did yesterday was use a coat of Da Vinci Retouch Varnish to deepen the colors and give it a nice glossy texture. It works as well as using gloss fixative spray on gouache paintings, definitely enriched it!

That leaves two oil paintings to finish of the four I started all at once so long ago. The twisted tree and the flying hawk are both still in progress sitting on my easel.

Re: Ari Cat Portrait
Thank you! He is so gorgeous. I've been fascinated with him since his Home Day. When I started getting him the fancy food, his coat turned all silky soft like a kitten again too.
