Scratch Cat, painting is finished.
The photo I began this painting from is above. You can see, when you work from a photo, you don't have to copy it literally. I like to take them and double or triple whatever emotion I see in the photo.
In real life, the cat was annoyed because it was a cold snowy day, he was squinting from the sun bouncing off the snow. I had fun making this cat look ticked off. :) donna
