Some pets have that King or Queen like quality! And my Aunt B sure does!
We rescued her 4 and a half years ago. She was in a cat rescue and was being shown at our PetSmart in town. Poor thing was marked down in price cause no one was even looking at her! Which is crazy cause she is a beautiful sweet gal with the coolest pink and lavender tones in her fur. We found out she was a muted tabby. Her babies were adopted but B remained in the cage 😦 But she was meant to join our family and that is why she was looked over by others!
Well I’ve painted all our pets and B was next. I have been working on and off her royal highness between my commissions and my collection paintings. I had found a cool painting of a black and white cat with cherubs surrounding it and I decided to do my own with Aunt B as the main subject!
A good one to practice painting in a somewhat old world style.
I think B will like it when it’s done! 🙂
So after many paintings of lovely doggies, I have completed one of a nudie cat! Boris the Sphynx!!!
I drew it up last Thursday eve and got busy on it Friday, Saturday and then finished it up this morning!! I am glad I used more colors than just one for the background. I think it helped with having colors that are in his face also be in the background. I am super happy how this one came out!!!! 🙂
Back on to the birds of prey paintings……………………….
