I am doing this cat painting a little bit differently than usual. It is a pretty dark cat and there will be several layers of under painting.
The first layer is identifying the original sketch of the cat. This is an outline painting in black with some dark greys in the bigger mass areas. Then, I'll do an under painting of translucent brown over the entire surface of the canvas.
Drew was a big help holding brushes for me. What would I do without him??
While the under paintings dry I'll get back to my pastel painting.
