Orange Tiger Tabby Cat on a Vintage Chair
I really added age to the chair with lots of alligatoring and paint scrapes.
Added highlights, too. And that's all for the chair, because I didn't want it to be a drawing of a chair that had a cat on it, but a cat on a chair!
The way the sunlight hits his eyes created an interesting reflection of the beautiful strong yellow green.
I also cropped it just a bit from my original composition. I feel I had too much dead wall space on the right. My apologies for the glare, I'm no photographer, and I admit it!
Now, is he for sale? Of course! I was going to sell it through the BlueStone Fine Art Gallery in Philadelphia, but time conflicts changed our plans. He's up for auction at DailyPaintWorks, where I am brand new and starting low to build a following.
I will also be using him as a sample for pet portraits.
By the way, if you are in Philadelphia, do stop by the BlueStone Gallery which is at 301 N. 3rd. It's a stunning space full of a great mix of art and the staff is top notch. They will help you find the art of your dreams!
