Lovee and Shirley


This thing is starting to drag on a bit. I may just admit this got the best of me and move on.
So far mostly Lovee.
These are my cats.
 I don't use a printer for reference photos. I have not used a printed photograph to paint from for months.
 I usually paint all over the canvas at the same time. I have never detailed one part of the scene and left the other parts unfinished.
 I had a 24"X24" piece of 1/2" MDF and a little can of black gesso. I used chalk to sketch out the figures. I usually do this with paint.
I also put Shirley's left eye and Lovee's eye at the points of the 1/3-2/3 grid points for a reference. So very methodical of me. So very not like me.

It's enjoyable to read about your working methods. Yes it is.
