Agnes : She loves but one.

11″ x 14″ Oil on Board

I believe this was my first pet portrait. This is my sister Erin’s cat. She’s still with us and has never adjusted to her housemate, ¬†Pearl the pug. Agnes has always been a one woman cat.

I can see a big difference in this painting from how I work now. This painting is very lean without a lot of layering. I work in acrylics now and find it more challenging to get a rich black.

Acrylics invite layering.
