All Progress Photos of Cat HooverFriday, November 14th, 2014
This is the progress of black cat Hoover in oils with a total of four stages. It is now drying here in my studio, waiting to be scanned. Once the painting is completely dry, I will “oil-out” the surface with walnut oil to bring out those dark colors. Dark oil colors tend to get a bit dull once dry, since I now only use turpentine as a thinner when I paint. Once the oil is on the canvas, the colors get more depth and vibrancy. Scoll down to view all photos.
