I find cats to be interesting creatures. I especially find the large cats to be beautiful, noble creatures. This was a challenge to paint as it's almost monochromatic and has a dark background. After a few starts, I finally figured it out. I like it! Once again, the eye is piercing and adds a touch of intense color to the work.
My process includes creating an acrylic wash to inspire the background, followed by a digital painting done using many transparent layers. I adjust the order and transparency of the layers until I get just the effect that I want and freeze it into a file for printing.
Each print is made after you place your order, using archival inks on archival water color paper with a white border displaying the quality paper.
