Whiskered trials and a brand new style.
I had never painted a cat before this little fella, and the whole process was surprisingly smooth and extremely enjoyable. I so often stress over the little details in my paintings ... And, okay, the whiskers brought actual tears of frustration to my eyes (this cat was SO whiskery) - but I'm already planning the next pet portraits. I will be continuing my fantasy pieces, but Im so pleased and relieved that I can happily produce various styles in acrylic paintings. Bring on the next challenge!
