Lights, Shadows and My C-A-T

"Waiting" 9x9 Oil on Canvas -SOLD
I took another photo of my cat and printed it out black and white. I wanted to keep practicing the concept of light and shadows rather than c-a-t.  I toned the canvas with paynes gray and transparent red oxide. I drew the shapes and then pulled out the lights with a viva paper towel. I blocked in the darks darker then painted the lights. I spent less than two hours trying to keep it loose and without a lot of detail. I like it but it still isn't quite to where I want it to be. More practice. I have another photo of her I will try, again,  tomorrow.
