This little guy was one of our kittens that went to live at my daughter's house. He is gorgeous - and a wonderful painting subject!! With the family coming over shortly to celebrate the 4th of July, I am painting small and fast, using those impressionistic strokes. I started by negatively painting his whole shape, before adding the colors in his fur. I used the edge of my catalyst for those bright highlights. That tool does not fit in my new easel, so I bought another one to cut down. I really miss it when I have to use my plain old palette knife! This painting is 1278 in 1278 days.
