'Tia' A3, Oil on board
Commission for my Auntie of one of the family cats, Tia. She is a beautiful cat, I hope I did her justice.
'Tia' original photograph
 I thought it might be interesting to show the original photo. In the painting I made a few changes, you may notice the leaves are not 100% accurate because I am not crazy enough to paint them so, but I do hope they are realistic enough. I also widened Tia's pupils as painting them as they are in the photo looked very strange.

The colours of the painting are also more like the original photo, I just haven't got the hang of photographing paintings yet. For example her fur is less red and the sky is a much paler blue.
