The Birdcage (in progress: sketch)

The Birdcage (sketch)

I had an idea to do another black cat, but this time I wanted to do something different. Bring a little story into the painting. Here’s the sketch I came up with.

So if the cat’s going to be black, I thought I could make the bird yellow and the wall a desaturated purple-ish.

I’ve been working somewhat big lately. Well, not necessarily BIG, but with all the details I like to add, 16″x20″ takes a pretty long time to finish. I wanted to do something that wouldn’t take quite as long, so this one’s pretty small; only 7″x5″.
