"Sunny Cat"

7 x 9" oil/ canvas mounted on hardwood panel

sold

Here is another painting of our cat LuLu. I was looking through a bunch of reference photos this morning and had them spread all over the floor. She came up and rolled all over the top of them as if to say, "Look at me. I'M pretty!"
So well, here she is. The subject is wonderful, and the composition has the same nice flow as the last one.
This painting was challenging because I wasn't sure if the shadows would work well. She is actually laying half in the sun and half out. So there are these strong cast shadows then the softer transition shadows going from sun to shade. I think I got it right.
