Day 216

Buster, 4 x 4 inch oil on panel
© 2013 Kathleen Coy

This gorgeous kitty was a commission. Buster looks like quite a character, and his people love him very much. I started with a light blue underpainting so that little bits of it would show through and compliment those beautiful blue eyes. Palette knife for the whiskers. Very happy with this piece.


  1. Beautiful cat! His eyes are gorgeous with the blue and I love his expression. I'm sure the owners are very happy with Buster's portrait!

  2. Just lovely, Kathleen. I keep thinking its your fleshtones that are so darn good, but I think its your values in general that are!

  3. Linda and Allison, THANK YOU!
    Allison, values were the number one thing I wanted to improve with this project, so that means a lot to me.
