What’s Black, White and Green?

“It’s T-Bone the Cat” 6×6 original oil on canvas panel. $150.

A cat on the grass, of course! This is T-Bone, another pet of one of my students. I really enjoyed painting his portrait, and making the most contrast between foreground and background by controlling the values. Of course, I also like the challenge of making furry edges.

Thanks to all of you who have made nice comments on my blog. Feel free to share the link if you like any of my paintings. I love this 30 paintings in 30 days group challenge – it’s a great variety of subjects and media, and browsing through the blogs is really inspirational. I’ve learned so much already.
