Pensive Cat

When I saw this cat, I simply knew I had to paint it. The color of its eyes and fur are simply enchanting.

Le Chat

I had been wanting to paint a cat for some time. Since I don't own one and I recently discovered the awesome Paint my Photo website, the time finally came!!!
I really enjoyed this one, I decided to be "free" and not stress out with tiny details. It takes some effort and lots of practice to separate the control freak side of your brain from the creative one... I painted it with the idea that it should be viewed from afar to get the full effect of the light. I had the opportunity some time ago to see some of Sargent's paintings and it seemed to me that he used this technique, so I wanted to give it a try.
