Painting Of A Cat

Buster's Friend
10x8", Oil on canvas
Rita Salazar Dickerson
Painting this little cat portrait was a treat for me.

Stage 2: I blocked in the major shapes and colors.
I have known this kitty for years and have always wanted to paint him.

Stage 1: Drawing the cat with a thin wash of Burnt Sienna and mineral spirits.
 
 The circumstances had to be just right. At last I seized the opportunity.

 His long silky hair and unique markings along with a lazy, relaxed pose and nonchalant attitude set the stage for a fun little painting.
