Captain Calico

Captain Calico
10x10 Acrylic on 1.5" Gallery Wrap Canvas
Sides painted to match blue of background
Varnished and wired, ready to hang
This big calico was painted yesterday with my regular limited palette, and underpainted with the regular cad orange method. Instead of using cobalt blue in the background color, I used my Prussian Blue, adding Naples yellow, a bit of Quin Magenta and Titanium white. Browns in his coat are varying mixtures of Prussian Blue and Cad red light. Quin Rose deep was used in a mixture with Naples yellow for the lighter, cool beige-browns in his undercoat. Undertones in his white fur are cobalt blue, Naples yellow and/or pink. Those big eyes are cobalt and cad yellow deep with highlights of Naples yellow. Contact me at for purchase or comments.
