I just finished this painting of my sister's cat, Wyatt, as commissioned by the veterinary clinic where she works as a going away gift. It was done in a acrylic on gessoed illustration board, 11.5" square. I enjoyed painting it in continuation with the other two cat paintings I did for her these past months. I just hope she likes it as well!
I do enjoy doing these realistic animal portraits, and would love to get more work like this. But I definitely consider it to be very different than my illustration work. In that respect I want to get away from realism and explore my stylization of animals... 'Til next time.
