Kara's Cosmic Cat

Kara's Cosmic Cat

Well your arduous efforts have been well rewarded Dawn. You have created a wonderful softness throughout the painting and melting eyes that would steal anyone’s heart. Just lovely.

What lovely comments, Carole. I had fun with this one.

Beautiful painting, Dawn - it's got lots of character, and the eyes are particularly good...

Lovely facial expression

Thank you, Jan and Ceri.

This is great - you have achieved a real good effect with the kitten's fur and those lovely eyes tell a story.

So cute! Beautifully done :)

Thank you, Margaret.

So cute Dawn, lovely pose and story. I wish that I could capture animals like this.

Thanks, Alan. It helps when you get a really good photo to work from.

My son and his fiancée's cat. Kara is a vet and Cosmic was taken in as a very poorly kitten. Kara nursed her back to health and went on to adopt her. Water mixable oils. I was trying out a new canvas pad. It was very strange to work on because the oils sat on top. I couldn't thin the paint down very well and it took a long time to dry. I had to work much looser on it too.
