|Looking absolutely nothing like a cat!!! ... just thin washes of alizarin crimson and burnt orange|
|Wet-in-wet applications of aureolin and burnt orange for the eyes, and thin direct applications of a black started on her face.|
STILL not looking much like a cat. Continuing with direct applications of the black ...
A pair of pupils - always a good idea. Also another w/w application of a dark brown from the top of the eyes to simulate shadow. NOW she's starting to look like a cat!
A bit of touching up with thin glazes of black, and she is done. Just a hint of background needed.
|Another strange-looking beastie! I have wet the entire head and neck and stroked in some phthalo blue and a mix of that blue with a bright pink.|
|These eyes are also done with w/w applications of aureolin and burnt orange; the ears with pink and a touch of burnt orange. Lots of teeny, fine brush strokes in the direction of hair growth ...|
|... and still more brush strokes ...|
|I like how the process of wetting and softly brushing in black softens the appearance of the coat. So once again, I mix up three dilutions of color, wet the entire area to be black, and start dropping in paint.|
