Finally back to work today on miniature ACEO commission for my Twitter friend Dave Carpenter.
Steps preceding this one:
Lots of pen and ink techniques. Remember, this painting is the size of a baseball card (3.5 x 2.5").
More pen and ink...
This handsome cat is a rich blue gray color, very thick luxurious fur, and obviously the prince of the home. I've given him a throne of tapestry-paisley pillows and a soft background of warm yellows to contrast against his blue-gray fur (yet to be done).
In the image to your right I've included a penny to give you a sense of the paintings size. The mini piece is a surprise gift for one of Dave's friends.
