A while ago I received two lovely 3x3 inch frames from an aunt of mine (thank you!) and ever since I've enjoyed whipping 0ut quick animal portraits. Some are realistic, while others border on realm of cartoon. All of them act as tiny samplers/exercises in style, technique and color theory. This time I played with an almost Mod approach with the jaw line, ears and eyes. Sort of a 1960's styled kitty. She (or he, I haven't decided yet..) has more work to be done, but only a bit of background and eye work keep it from being hung up.
A penny demonstrates just how small the critter is.
More to come on the Imaginary Portrait and this new piece.
