Blink Macro Cat Painting by Michelle Wrighton

Currently unavailable for purchase

Who can resist these eyes? This is a reproduction of my original color pencil painting created in 2007 on drafting film of ’"Blink" a beautiful cat owned by a fellow artist.

“Blink” was placed Second in the Painting – Drawing Any Subject category at the 2008 Canning Show (First Place was awarded to my colour pencil painting “We Three Kings II – Lion” and Third to “Noble” my German Shepherd Dog in charcoal (yes I was very pleased with this Hat Trick!).

I am a West Australian artist specialising in “up close and personal” pet portraiture and wildlife art in a variety of traditional art mediums including graphite, charcoal, pastels, colour pencils, acrylics, oils – as well as photography and digital paintings using an ipad, wacom tablet and Corel Painter real media emulation software.
