12" x 9" oil on stretched canvas
This portrait of sweet little Mitzi was delivered yesterday and I'm happy to say the client loved it - no changes or adjustments! Yea! For this painting I found myself again mixing with the neutral warm and cool gray tube colors from the Sandin Pro Mix Color System for flesh tones! I would have preferred a reference photo with a more direct gaze since a cat's eyes are so amazing! At least the green color shows and a hint of her personality comes through as she plans her next "adventure"! I am told Mitzi is always "up to something", and that she's very affectionate.
