Mother Mountain Lion and Kitten

This is a large painting 24" x 48".  Working large feels better for me. So I'm back at it.
When I was in Montana I photographed a mother mountain lion with her kittens. So here's one I'm working on. Using oil and applying it with pallet knife and brush.

Fox Painting Al Dente

Al Dente   It should not taste uncooked......If there is a bit of translucency in the center, the pasta is done. That is al dente.


Well I'm going to call this painting done/Al Dente.  
Perhaps leaving room for uncertainty may be more appealing.
So here it is 

Oil on paper 12"x 17"

Title     to be determined

Fox painting continues

More work today. One thing..I must mind my brush strokes....still challenged by working smaller..
Here it is..Day 2 of painting:




Fox painting on oil paper

I'm trying a new substrate, oil paper.  The paint works pretty well with the surface.
 I'm using both pallet knife and brush with a small amount of non toxic solvent.
Here's a first try, not yet done. I tend to work on a few pieces at a time.

Lynx Painting

It's difficult to work small...seems to be just as if not more challenging as working large.
So here's the Lynx on Wood...done mostly with pallet knife and some brush work.

9" x 12"
