Pink Nose, a cat painting.

“Pink Nose” oil on panel, 5×5″

I started this painting a while ago, and finally finished it! I love cats and have already painted a few, and plan to paint many more in the near future.

The amount of subtle colors in a white cat are astonishing! I had such a wonderful time trying to capture not only the colors, but the values (level of light and dark) as well. I started out by using a printout as my reference, but finished up by referring to a photo on my iPad. Wow, the colors showed differently. I had to wing it.

Thanks to sarahharas1 of DeviantArt for the fabulous reference photo.
