She enjoys sitting on a cushion and looking out the window, so I placed her in that environment to do the portrait. Here is the background painted in and the beginnings of the cat's fur.
I have extended the curtain above her so that it visually connects rather than leaving it as a disconnected entity at the top of the painting.
In the finished piece below, you will see that I enlarged it further and darkened it behind her so that she would stand out more from the background.
Here is Mosa's portrait finished. The client told me she is a sweet and loving cat. She does look sweet, doesn't she, as if she's waiting for you to pet her?
