Tuna?

 Tuna?
8 x 8 oil

Like most things, repetition can improve skills.  Its no different with paintings and there are some pieces that need a second look.  This is one of them.

A couple of years ago I did a painting of Tripod, called The Stalker, which sold fairly quickly.  I liked the position and lighting and came across the image while looking for other reference pieces and thought I'd try it again. 

This piece is higher key, and perhaps his attention is more to the sound of a can opener for his favourite food, tuna, now.

I like the rough alley cat appearance of the stalker and the feel you captured a moment in this one.

Ooh, what a ponderous expression... I like the contrast of light against dark too!

Thanks Sue. He gets pretty scruffy when outside and really has that alley cat look about him. He's a bit more civilized in this piece. :)

Katherine, I love how cats can have this look of supreme concentration at times and capturing that is a challenge. Yes, the contrasts really give impact.
