A beautiful tabby cat, painted in (Linda Wain’s) Procolour acrylics on hot-pressed Fabriana Satino watercolour paper. These amazing paints are better known as Chromacolour but now are only available in the UK through Linda Wain’s agency as Linda, an award-winning wildlife artist, uses them all the time in her own work. The painting was the basis for a workshop for my local art club, inspired by a recent workshop by visiting artist Mark Holiday. The photographic reference for this painting was supplied with permission for use by a friend and the sale of any prints (and 50% of the original) will generate donations for the local SSPCA.

I’m an artist who loves animals as you’ll no doubt see from my subject matter but also, living in Shetland, am inspired by my beautiful, wild land and seascapes. I take commissions for portraits from photographs, run an art club, and also enjoy doing illustrations for children’s books.

    The detail in your cat’s fur and it’s beautiful, glassy eyes bring magic to this beautiful painting. Bravo.
