What I Used for This Painting
This was done in acrylic on canvas panel, and is 9 x 12 inches.
Why This Painting is My Favorite from 2013
I really wanted to work on something detailed, and I had a lot of fun with the fur and whiskers on this portrait. I used a fairly limited palette as well, but did not find that it limited what I could do in the picture. I'm pleased with how it turned out!
- How to use something other than a flat brush, which is my go-to brush for landscapes. Here I used filberts and riggers for everything but the original roughing-in.
- How much detail is detailed enough, and how much is too much and looks overworked.
