Annie Cat's Finished!
All done now!
I put tea in the cup, strengthened the shadows, did more work on the spoon, and that was it. Adding the tea to the cup was scary. I was using transparent Burnt Sienna, and I figured that I couldn't rework it and so had only one chance to get it right!
I'm not sure I like this painting all that much. I have the nagging feeling that I should have thought it through more before I started. But still it's a nice addition to my suite of tea paintings and will fit well in my dining room which I've converted to a tea room.
I'm honored to have been able to paint this sweet and fortunate cat!
