Meka - The Sweet Petite Persian
Meka is a sweet, petite Persian that I recently painted for the lovely lady who is the Director of The Greenbrier Spa at The Greenbrier Hotel & Resort in White Sulphur Springs, WV. The soft greys in Meka's fur are a mix of Prussian blue, a touch of Rose Madder, a little Naples Yellow and varying amounts of titanium white. Her pinks are Rose Madder and white, and her eyes are a combination of three different yellows. The dark green background and edges of the canvas are very blue-green and a mixture of Prussian Blue, cadmium yellow deep and a slight touch of Rose Madder. I really enjoyed painting Meka - her fur was a delight to layer and shade. Her owner loved the painting and I think Meka probably liked it too. Second and third photos show detail of right and left edges of Meka's sweet face and fluffy chest. Your comments are always welcome.
