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.
