|Titfer Kitty Acrylic Painting on Canvas|
I decided to take one of my many photos of him and messed about with him on Photoshop putting various hats on him until I decided he just looked so right in a very dapper top hat and goggles!
I hate working on a white canvas so always try to get rid of the white as soon as I can. I thought he would work well on a red background. Here it is on my easel with a very rough pencil drawing to work from.
The next step I block in as much of the image as I can, keeping it very simple. He has a very cute smile here!
A few more layers and details added and he is starting to come together. A bit more work on the hat and goggles and then always the final touch of adding the whiskers!
The finished painting. The painting is resting on our barbecue as I find it has an interesting background for these paintings and I always try to take the photos in lots of natural light for the best effect.
He also now features on a greeting card and should be in my new calendar that I produce every year around September time.

And will be added to the hall of fame of my many other Cats in Hats paintings!
