  • Orange Tabby Cat Portrait : Rock Complete


    orange tabby cat portrait oil painting by Leanne Wildermuth
    Rock’s portrait is complete (pending client approval). What a day, what a week! I’ve been painting my fingers off, whiskers and fur flying from my paintbrushes faster than they have in a long time. I did take a lot of photos as I painted today to kindof share a little tutorial about how I layer the fur. I’ll try to put that together for you next week.

    I’ll post the final scan once it’s dry. Have a great weekend – I hope your weather is great and the sun is shining wherever you are!!

    I just love the cats you paint. We used to have a cat who looked just like this one. It’s stunning, the detail you achieve. I love the little mark on his nose, I can see it so faintly on the reference photo. Kudos Leanne. You should be very proud of your work. I’m sure the client will love it.

    Each and every portrait is such an exceptional work of art… the level of realism is almost unbelievable.

    After a few years of drooling over your art I do believe I’ve run out of adjectives! :rofl:

    Okay, I think my heart just about burst on this one. I’m a goner when it comes to orange kitties.

    I was Rock’s step-grandmother – and I have to say it absolutely captures him. Very nice work!
