Painting cats, a common household pet, is one of the most popular requests for most animal portrait artists.
This domestic cat is captured with it's yellow green eyes and tabby on white coat. All the details have been meticulously added by Su. This piece was designed to hone and master skills, which can be seen in the progress photos.
You will notice that there are times it is difficult to spot whether it's the original image or Su's work that is on show.
The finished piece is available for sale, as pictured above.
The work on this cat though didn't end here. This particular piece of work inspired Su to try an alternative medium too.
The aim was to see is she could get as good a likeness as she has achieved here. The newer medium is digital, drawn on an iPad. Does that not blow your mind! Well you can see the end result and the progress video, by viewing the facebook video here...
The digital art is also for sale, although this will be limited editions. If this is something that you would like, then please do contact us and we will discuss this with you.
You can see the importance of capturing the eyes of the portrait. A lot of detail is contained with the eyes, and in real life, they are a window to the very essence of the being.
