Painting Some Gorgeous Cats

I am working on a commission to paint some truly gorgeous cats. My client has six beautiful kitties and I have painted three of them so far. I am having so much fun as she wanted them colorful which is exactly how I like to paint cats. These paintings are each 8x10 and I will be doing a larger 10x20 with all six in a window. I will be working on that next but I wanted to share these paintings. You can see the little color studies I am using for the paintings in the photo. I like to do pet portrait commissions when the client is looking for a more painterly look and not a traditional portrait. These are done on LaCarte paper which is my favorite surface for animals.

Why is LaCarte your favorite surface for animals? These are beautiful! I would love to see a step by step of the painting process! Keep up the great work!
