Garden Centre Cat

Garden Centre Cat

I really like this John. The cat has such presence, the colours are beautiful together and you've got a wonderful technique. Of course I love cats too.

How gorgeous. The fur is great and I love his/her expression.

Beautiful fur texture very skilled work. I know a couple of garden centres that keep a cat :)

Great fur texture and beautiful expression.

John, I can see why you specialise in animal pictures. This is top class

Very well done beautiful details

A beautiful painting of a beautiful cat John.

Beautiful work, John.

A superb piece of work John, so skillful!

What's this done in, John? Great fur.

Thank you all for your kind comments, in answer to Dawn's question, I draw the outline with pastel pencil. Then fill the background and different tones and base colours of the animal with liquid acrylic, using an airbrush. I then add the detail of fur etc. using high quality coloured pencils, such as Caran d'Ache Luminance. John.

Great painting John.

This cat was spotted by my wife in a garden centre. I based this picture on her photograph.
