Our art discussion topic was about canvases and supports today. I brought in this oil study (that was done on a sheet of Centurion linen). To see what everyone else brought...go HERE.
Dave G is back from his trip, so my cat-sitting duty is over. It was a lot of fun to draw and paint Maxine every day. She seemed to sense that I was making her my model, so she would stay in one spot for long stretches! I've got an oil painting of her started (from a photo).
Drawing a cat is more of a challenge than you would think. They have such subtle shapes...if you aren't careful they come out looking like a dog. (And I have a lot of "dogs" to prove it)!
