"Minnie in Leopardskin"
original miniature painting
acrylic paint and Inktense pencil on illustration board
3-1/2" x 2-1/2" (ACEO size)
signed and dated on the back

This is a portrait of a cat named Minnie. Even though she lives in California (where it's warm most of the time, according to what my friends tell me), I decided to paint her wearing a stylish leopardskin coat and matching hat. She's quite the fashion plate, isn't she? And in the background I painted a snow-filled sky, which somehow seems to suit Minnie's wardrobe.

As with many of my other cat portraits, this one has been created with multiple layers of acrylic paint and Inktense pencil. In this case, I chose illustration board with a smooth finish for my painting surface. You can actually feel the buttons on the coat and the texture of the leopardskin fur, which is quite detailed (see close-up photo). This makes the painting as much fun to touch as it is to look at.

Please note that although the colours are accurate on my own computer monitor, they might not be on yours.
