A Handsome Ginger Cat
This is a sort of hybrid of a painting. It was an experiment to see if I could find a way to offer custom portraits at a reduced price. Here’s what I did. A while back, I had painted “Guinea Pig In A Blue Dress” in this very outfit. On the digital image of that painting, I eliminated the guinea pig. Then I had a canvas print made of the headless gal. I used that canvas print as the start to this bearded dragon portrait. So, the bearded dragon, (and some highlights in the outfit here and there) are painted in oil, and the background and the rest of the outfit is a reproduction. With several unifying coats of varnish, it just looks like the whole piece is an original painting.
