The other day, my grand daughter brought over the cutest coloring book called, Cats With Hats: Coloring for a Purrfect Day.
She was showing me a few of the pictures she already completed and I found myself flipping through some of the cutest illustrations. I found one that I loved and decided to incorporate it into a canvas.
The background is actually a napkin that I applied to an 11 x 14" canvas. I used an acrylic wash on the kitten before applying it to the canvas.
Loving the colors, I painted a few butterflies to match and then decided where I would put them.
I added some paint to the background to suggest a daytime garden. I stencilled the kitten's cap in a victorian pattern. I painted a few more flowers, some limbs and then details to round out the painting.
