Oil on Linen
This is the finished version, the completed painting of the kittens at the beach.
The original photograph from a friend just showed the cats reacting to the sudden window blind opening, facing the garden, stunned at the plethora of birds.
I added the old oak winged lion chair, the butterflies and dragonflies and maidenflies and hummingbird, the caterpillar, ladybugs, mechanical mouse, beach ball, bucket, starfish, lots of birds and bit of string. There’s a touch of beach umbrella and floating fabric they’re peering from, and a landscape vanishing into far off clouds.
It was all an enormous pleasure and challenge to do, the colors are strong and bright, and I’ve been pleased with the end result.
Thanks for looking.
