This is a photo of Tahquitz, a beautiful cat, adopted from a shelter in San Diego, California. I photographed Tahquitz using a smart phone, but it took me several attempts to get a good clear photo since Tahquitz was not a cat that would sit still on command. She was always moving, but I got this photo after she moved away from the window. The white areas of her fur now had a bluish tone, and I used that as inspiration for my color choices as I worked on this painting. I didn't try to do a detailed underpainting, but rather just jumped in and starting painting the colors that I saw in the photo. As a result, this was a fun painting to do, and Taqhitz's mom was very happy when she saw it.
Just an artist rambling on about her love of art, dogs, and pet adoption. And I also like to share cool dog videos, photos, and some famous quotes I like.
