As I mentioned in the last post I am going to do my own “Rosina Wachtmeister” to hang in my home. I have always loved her work and even had a couple of ‘paintings’ I did back in Canada. Long since gone when I moved back to NZ last year, I think it’s time to ‘paint me another one’. With so many to choose from, I decided on the one below. I may, or may not use the same colours, but the reason I want this one is that it has three cats. One black and white, one grey and one tabby.
While our old grey guy Tyson is no longer with us, we still have Molly (White and Black) and LP (Tabby manx). Fitting that in this painting the grey cat is off to one side, while the other two sit together. So not only do I get some lovely art, it will also be a kind of tribute to my three furbabies.
I will be doing this one on a 23.6 x 35.4 inch stretched canvas. If I am lucky, I may actually get to sketch it out tomorrow sometime. Actual painting? Hmm…. I guess I should actually make more of an effort to get this one done!
