'Lily' Oil on board, 20 x 14 cm

My cat, Lily, painted in oils on board. This took about 7 hours roughly. I need to start timing how long I spend painting. I wanted to copy the photograph as closely as possible but without spending too long on the background.

A more detailed painting of Milly. This one took about 10 hours or so to do, most of which was colour mixing!

'Milly' Oil on board, 50 x 40 cm, cropped.

My gran's cat, Milly. Painted in a much looser style than the previous one of Lily because I did this one for fun and as a bit of a break from the photorealist style of the last few paintings. It is also a lot bigger which makes it much easier to be more gestural with the brushstrokes.

This is a slightly cropped version.
