Meow's New Muffler
Meow's New Muffler was inspired by the big snow we had yesterday - the biggest this winter! It is nearly all melted now - all except for the nooks and crannies in the surrounding hills. Meow's portrait was done with a limited palette consisting of two blues: cobalt and ultramarine; two yellows: Naples and cadmium deep; two reds: quin rose and cadmium red medium; and titanium white. The ultramarine blue and cad red made a nice grey-purple that I used to underpaint Meow's fur. While the cobalt and quin rose made a lighter lavender for his highlights. This painting will make beautiful cards and prints, I think. Second photo shows detail of this wintery kitty's pretty face. Your comments are always welcome.
