A change of pace!


Blue Kitten, 6x6" Acrylic on canvas

OK, I know - this is nothing like you've seen me post before... and the truth of the matter is, this is something completely different than I've done before. I was interested in trying a nearly monochromatic approach to a subject. and also interested in working with values being represented by a color. (My subject is the newest member of our family, a new kitten.)

So, here you have the outcome. Interesting, I think. It was fun to do something entirely different. By the way, my small audience watched her portrait being done - and attacked the canvas a few times. She is now wearing a small dot of paint next to her ear!

Really nice gesture and personal piece here..good for you Helen. I do monochromatic under paintings before I add color and sometimes I think I should stop at that stage because the piece looks finished...I think your piece is a good example of that here. I've never tried blue before..hmmm..I may have to steal that from you. I love the Sunflower tryptic.
Hope you are well.
All the best,
Todd
