Ringo by sidneyeileen Ringo by sidneyeileen
Oil paint on canvas board, 5"x7"
Four sessions
Reference: Photo of Ringo, who lives with me.

On the final sitting I finished the eye and applied another layer of black paint to most of the areas that are supposed to be dark black.

Done.


WIPs:


#TraditionalPainting's November contest, "Painting the World"
This painting is a perfect blending of what to me are the most important things in my life, my art, and my loved ones. Ringo is one of three of my cats, my little black shadow who is always happy for a petting or a snuggle. I love painting and drawing animals and nature, and in addition to being a loving friend Ringo is a fantastic subject for my art.

stunning. i'm gobsmacked by the way you captured the subtle variations of gold hues in his eye, and the light playing in his whiskers and kissing his fur is incredible. i just love this piece.
