December 18 - Pesto Pose
What a cat. She comes and "Pests" me at every opportunity, wanting to be close. She fell asleep in my chair after I took a couple of photos of her playing with the tangerine.
I liked the light on her, but the nifty part of painting this one was depicting the foreshortened front paw.
This painting also has a LOT of heavier paint application--those whites are really, really thick. I always add the "sparkle" of the focal points and the lightest lights last.
It's for sale for $195 from my daily paintings web site
