Black Cat, White Scarf, reworked

12x24 acrylic on panel
Went back over a lot of this one.... it's a lot "cooler" now, overall. And I think the stripey tights a just a spark of whimsey, I like that. But the chin is weak, there was this reflected light from the scarf and I couldn't quite get it. As I was working on it I realized that covering her legs compltely made a kind of hands-and-face triangle of interest, what with those really being the only colorful areas, and I think that makes it stronger. And all that thinking probably means that I am overthinking....


  1. Well done! The cat is placed just right--I love the stripey leggings --she dresses cool
