Ginger cat in progress

I'm really enjoying painting cats at the moment.  I wanted to paint a cat with amber eyes and decided to use this lovely reference from the Wet Canvas photo reference library.  This is how far I've got, still a bit more detail needed in the fur and he needs whiskers too...

Cats in Oil

The last few weeks I've been concentrating on painting cats in oil.  My first attempt was a beautiful closeup of a silver Persian.  I've actually done this picture before but in coloured pencil.  I'm so much happier with this oil version though..

Next I decided to paint a cute little kitten lying back on a blanket.  This one was more challenging as there was a lot more fur to paint but I was happy with the results...

Long time no post

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted on my blog!  I have been busy with my art, new Brusho pieces, a pastel and some oils as well.  Below are some of the works I've done...
