Painting Cats. Start to Finish.

First off, I have a feeling that writing this post – and more importantly, getting all the photos and captions in the right order – is going to take me longer to complete than the actual painting.

I’m technologically challenged, but I have the best of intentions. Here goes.


Title: Redward and Whitey (RIP Whitey)

Completed: December 22, 2009

Soundtrack: Storm Large, “Crazy Enough”

Beverage: Three-Buck Chuck


At any rate, that’s how a painting goes, start to finish. Merry Christmas mom and dad! Hope you like the painting and I hope you don’t read this ’til after Dec. 25.

    I have to say that I LOVE this painting. I am really spoiled! Both kitties were totally captured in their eyes alone….can’t wait to get this on the wall. Thanks again, Rachie!

    Oh a really gorgeous painting. I really enjoyed watching the piece develop.

    […] I paint on Yupo which is a synthetic, tree-free paper. Since it doesn’t absorb water like regular watercolor paper, the pigment dries on the surface and that’s how I can get really unique textures in my work. You can see a painting progress start to finish here. […]
