This is Kiki’s underpainting. She’s a stunning calico and will be a beautiful addition to my exhibit next month. The next time you see her, she’ll be finished. She’s 16×20, a nice big size, larger than life size, actually.

Her ears, forehead, eyes and nose are complete. I’ll finish her portrait tomorrow and show her to you again right-side-up.
I’ve just spent the morning adding all of my latest paintings to my portfolio. I’ll post the thumbs here and link to the detail pages so you can go have a look at the larger final scan of the paintings, if you’d like. Enjoy!

Cheeky’s portrait is done, cute little silvery baby reminds me of a persian – that soft fluffy fur and those gorgeous baby gray/green eyes. I’ll scan and post the final painting (along with the others I completed this week) when (they’re all) dry.
I worked on Elsie for quite a while yesterday, basically just painting in her dark fur. I’ll wait now until this layer is dry before I paint her ears and her next coat of fur. I love this look though, it reminds me of pen and ink. If it weren’t for the smell of oils in my studio, you might think so looking at it, too. Every single brushstroke will give her portrait that much more dimension, and it’ll make the painting that much more interesting to view.
