Snowflake by AmandaDrage Snowflake by AmandaDrage
Finished in time for Christmas... I have not been a fan of this one throughout, and although it looks better than I imagined now it's done, it's still not a favourite of mine!

I clearly need more practise with the looser style of painting. Also I have no idea what is going on with the colours. ;)

Kittens. Cute to look at. Evil to paint.

Oil 12x12" commission of sorts (for my nan's husband's sister).
Reference was one of my own photos, not uploaded to the internet.

Never painting another one again :lol:

Glad you didn't swear off cats for good! This little guy is awesome! We are always our own worst critic, but honestly, how can you find fault with this? Lovely

Thank you very much :) Yeah, I said after this I'd never paint another, but of course I have since. Some part of me must enjoy it ;)

I think it looks great! I struggle a lot drawing cats because it's just so weirdly difficult to get their proportions correct.

YES it is isn't it! They're just too fluffy and don't seem to have definite structure to them. And don't get me started on the symmetry and the eye placing LOL. Thanks v much :)

Those eyes are entrancing! I love the soft look of the fur, the contrast between that and the eyes is really brilliant :)
