Black Cat on a Fence
11" x 14" oil on linen
This is the piece I had students paint in class last Tuesday night. One gal had asked if we could paint a cat so this is what I found. It fit my lesson plan, which focused on atmospheric perspective. They were also surprised that we could paint a black cat without using black paint.
Everyone struggled with the eyes but they were all finished within two hours.
