Tabby Cat – custom pet portrait SOLD

6 1/2″ x 9″ pastel painting

SOLD – commissioned

The commissions for pet portraits are coming in slow yet steady. I’m hoping for more!
The reference photo for this painting was small and provided less detail than I would have wanted but I was able to work it out. The eyes were so dark that I used my creative license to paint them. My favorite part of the painting is the front paw. It looks so soft and strokable.
My least favorite part was the heart. The customer wanted the words placed somewhere in the painting but the area was way too small to work in. A number of times my mantra was “I wish I used acrylics”.
