Kicker & Cracker

Well, I can’t say this painting hasn’t been a challenge, in fact at times I’ve felt like throwing down the paintbrush and giving up.

I was given a slightly blurry photograph of these two cats, sitting on a towel with the rest of the background cut out apart from the arm of the sofa.  Since finishing the cats I have painted in several backgrounds; sitting on a towel, a cushion behind, plain sofa, etc.,  but wasn’t happy with any of them.  There was just too much of one background colour to leave it, so I settle on them sitting on a cushion.  Shading was the next challenge, but I’ve pretty much done the best I can for now.

The thing that kept me going was knowing that it means so very much to the cats’ owners to have this painting in their home :)
