Commission Pet Portrait of "Wellie."
Ok... Missing eye... chewed up ear... Half of a tail (not pictured) what gives?!
Today I got a sale at etsy in the featured seller chat room... a fellow New Yorker put a down payment on a commissioned pet portrait! She wants to surprise her husband with this painting... and what a character this pet turned out to be!
Wellie, or Wellington, as he's formally called... was rescued from a cardboard box near a closed bar in Brooklyn New York. He was rescued- and given treatment... and a loving home! I get the feeling this kitteh recently passed away? And this painting might serve as a reminder of him. (:
I'm doing the painting in artist's quality acrylics on an 8 x 10 primed canvas... here's Day ONE'S work... Stay tuned for the completed portrait! I plan on finishing up the banner- putting his name on it, and making catnip grow up from the bottom of the painting- his favorite thing! I really have to fight myself to not paint a collar on him- collars look so awesome against black fur!
I am having more fun painting Wellie due to his unusual features! What a character!
Thanks for reading!
