This is my initial rough sketch for a portrait commission
I am doing. These two feline companions snuggled
up together often and their owner took lots of photos
of them in this type of position. But when you are
doing a painting, BOTH cats have to be visible and
in many of the photos, you could see one of them,
but not the other! So this has now become the chosen
What you see here is what I've done to work out
the pose to fit properly on the panel I will be painting.
It is 11 x 14 and it will be in oil.
