Lady Blue

About the project

Jemima is once again my model for this cat portrait. She sits regally on her blue cushion and surveys her indoor territory: a look that every cat lover will recognise.

My favourite brush is a size 0 which allows me to capture every strand of fur and build it up into layers.  I tried to be faithful to Jemima’s complex pattern of spots and stripes.

Adding a dark background helps the subject to stand out. I blend washes of colour over the face and body to make Jemima’s fur seem soft and touchable.

By darkening Jemima’s tail and body, it seems like her face and front legs are bathed in light which makes her stand out more.
