Cat on catnip 2
Sorry for the bad lighting on this painting...but maybe you can see the progress made on the bottom right cat anyway. I think some of the postures will be changed a bit to improve the composition, but we'll see. I love the flexibility of oil pastel on generously applied acrylic medium on board. Double edged sword, however, as the painting smears easily and never dries. That's why these artworks have to be framed with a spacer under glass or Plexi...to protect the surface from being bumped and smeared. That's also why I always wear old clothes while painting..otherwise all my clothes would be stained. It's a messy medium!
