Small Cat Portrait

Small Cat Portrait

cat portrait 542

This is a small 4x4in portrait of a cat. I took a photo of the painting outside so you can see the different shades of the fur as the sun bounces off. On a small portrait there is not much room to show a lot of detail without taking attention away from the subject. Instead I used variations in thickness of paint to give the painting dimension. Below is the original reference photo.
