Sepia by Face-Reality Sepia by Face-Reality
Sepia - Watercolour - 12" x 16" - January 2013

I haven't been on DeviantArt too much lately... was so busy with the holidays and trying to keep caught up with work. I've done a few paintings since I last posted and will post them all soon, but wanted to start with this one...

I simply LOVE cats, and wanted to share my precious Sepia with you. I hadn't painted a cat portrait in about a year's time, and had an urge to do so once again. I've since completed another, but this one is still my preference.

There's just something about Sepia... :)

Happy New Year all and thanks for looking!!

Reminds me of my own dear cat, Meow....this is fantastic.  From the highly detailed head and whiskers, the indistinct background - just enough out of focus - so that the head almost pops off the page, and the eyes - mesmerizing.  Magnificent!

What size brush do you use for the individual hairs of her fur?
Reply
:iconface-reality:
Face-Reality Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013   Traditional Artist
It wasn't a small brush, by any means... maybe an 8, with a nice point on it... which I will have to replace now, as it is not quite so fine anymore :(

Even more impressive that you used a large-ish brush.
