Almost finished :)

24 x 30 Commissioned painting......

The client asked for a horse.
Instead of doing a running horse , or one that is in a pasture....I chose to do this one.

I tried to capture the strength and the power of a horse. Stones and sand Flying away.. will give more action , and add to the movements.
The bottom needs to be finished.......and some more details :)
I have uploaded the steps.......I find it interesting when people see the evolution of a painting.

Jade..a Special Girl

This is for a Special Lady.....Julie Stanton Welch.

First I would like for you to met Jade.

Jade had a diagnostic a couple of months ago with HCM.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a condition characterised by the inward thickening of the heart muscle, resulting in a reduction of chamber volume, thereby reducing the volume of blood that the heart can pump with each contraction.

This sadly....makes the cats at risk of developing congestive heart failure and sudden death.

Julie is an activist in supporting and gathering funds for FIP & HCM, at TICA & CFA shows.

Julie has lost Mariah and King at only a few months old to FIP.

FIP is Feline infectious peritonitis and it is a fatal incurable disease that affects cats.

When I saw a photo of Jade.....I just had to paint her.

I asked Julie for the permission to use Jade as a model for a painting.

The rest is history. :))

I am giving this painting to support of all she does to fund the WINN Foundation to help find a cure to FIP.

Julie sells magnets and other beautiful things for the funding.

You can go here to help support FIP.

And here on Julie's facebook album

Thank you Julie for all your hard work !

cat portrait step 2

This is only the start..........
Yes I know......bad is a bit darker.
By looking at this , the Right wisker pad had to be a bit larger, this has been fixed.
My cam batteries died on I will run to my coroner store, and take more of the work in progress...

Next comes the nose, the fur....and details in those awesome eyes Jade has :)))

callas are finished. :)

Click on the photos for a better view.
12 x 48 inches on a beveled canvas.
Dry brush technique.

This is perfect if you do not have a lot of wall it is only 12 inches wide.
The '' inner part '' is 10 inches wide.leaving the angel of the sides at 1 inch each.

I had fun re-newing with this technique.
The colors are more like the close-up........and orange -yellow.
Except of the red-orange one..near the middle.

For sale.....:)

I am painting the cat-portrait right now.
My airbrush is almost like I will post once finished, but with the ongoing steps.

Dry Brush

well...there is a piece of my airbrush that broke :((
But I found the piece and it will be repaired tonight or tomorrow morning.
My cat portrait will have to wait till Sunday to continue.

Until it can be repaired..I started this 12 x 48 inch painting on a deco-canvas.( beveled sides ) It is a dry brush technique.something I do not do often......sort of fun to re-new with this technique.

I am still awaiting the deposit for my commissioned painting. I know this will be sent in a couple of weeks. :)))

After saving pennies ( literally ) I have managed to buy some canvases and some tubes of basic colored paints.
There are 3 paintings coming up....:)

One is for another special Lady ( portrait of her beautiful cat ) 18 x 24 inches.
It is a gift for her...she has had a very hard time lately.and I think this will bring up her spirits a bit :) I am starting Tuesday Morning. ( b & w photo above )

The second one is for my son.:).... something I have never painted before ( epic/ fantasy )
This will be the largest ( on canvas ) I have ever done. 4 x 8 feet.
This one should take around 2 weeks to do, or more.I do admit 2 things, I am a bit overwhelmed by the size, and this is far from my comfort zone theme ( animals )
There will be 2 wolves in the that should make me more at lease.

The third one is a commission. 24 x 30 inches. I am awaiting the deposit before starting. No rush, anyways I have to do the other 2 first.

This should keep me occupied for 4 weeks....:)
