Fiona Shazam - Oil Painting Pet Portrait
I love cats. Always have, always will. Ever since I was a little kiddo, I've wanted a floofy cat, and with Fiona Shazam, I finally have a floofurnutter in my life. And oh - the cat hair. It's everywhere, all the time. But boy is she cute! I wanted to try my hand at painting cats, as I've been drawing them for as long as I can remember, and I decided to work from this photo I took of Fiona last year with our Canon Rebel that had great lighting. This painting only took a few sessions to do, as I was trying to work quickly and not overthink it too much. But if the painting looks unfinished and you can't quite figure out why - I recently did: I forgot to paint on her whiskers! I plan on going back in and finishing those, but I've been swamped with other projects and haven't gotten back to it yet. Soon, though!
Here are progress photos from the painting process:
