I painted a 16x20 acrylic of my friend’s 3 departed kitties toward the end of last year. She had just lost the 3rd one and was pretty upset. She sent me the images and I strategically arranged them into the same space. These are the first cats I’ve ever painted and was pretty happy with the way it turned out. I like texture and vibrant colors so I first added a physical texture on the canvas with an acrylic gel medium, then added texture with colors using stencils that I both bought and created with a stencil cutter and blanks. I plan to try more animal portraits - they are fun to do!
