My Abyssinian Kitty – 6" x 8" Oil on Canvas Panel

Yesterday I spoke about the still life I am working on, unfortunately it was too wet to complete the next step I had anticipated for today. Hopefully I will find time to work on it later this week to post it then when it is finished.

Instead today on Sunday I worked on other still lifes and this alla prima painting of my kitty, Slim. She is not crazy about getting photos taken of her, but she loves walks. And this image was taken of her just as she was trying to entice me to take her on a walk outside. It is my first true attempt at painting her, I really enjoyed it, and so I expect to paint other images of her in the future...

Thanks, Liz
