Patch of Sun - Cat (WIP)



A beautiful cat doing what cats do best, finding a patch of sun and enjoying it's cozy warmth. This painting is almost done; I will work on it one more day to finetune it and add some fun details (like whiskers).
The image is from the Wetcanvas reference image library, generously posted by a very talented photographer. Unless you only paint from life, you must either take great pictures, or paint enough so that what the reference lacks, you can intuitively add.

Nice work, Rhonda. Really caught the mischievous and playful nature of a cat. Great light.

Rhonda, you've captured a great sense of light here. Also your color variance really brings forth the radiance of light. Fantastic work!
