1647 Serene Pose NFS

12" x 12" oil on canvas, NFS
This is a  kitty belonging to a dear friend back in England, I have been promising to paint her portrait for ages and I have finally got around to it. It took me quite a while to get her right, but I am finally happy with her.

 Unfortunately my painting room faces south and I have large patio doors to let in lots of light which is far too bright and when I paint from my computer screen the colours and contrast change dramatically. Especially difficult on a day where the sun comes in and out, drives me batty!
