While Elmer is getting framed, I started up the cat oil portrait of Applejack today.

This oil painting is in size 11″x14″ and the surface I’m painting on is Italian Linen Canvas, stretched onto a wooden frame.

The canvas is professionally stretched by a company and all gallery-wrapped canvases they create are bespoke. It takes a while to get these delivered, however it’s really worth the wait.

I took a few photos while painting today, I hope you’ll enjoy them. Keep coming back for more updates on this lovely cat. Can’t wait to complete those wonderful eyes!
