Bobcat by hibbary Bobcat by hibbary
More painting practice. This one took longer. Mostly it was me derping around, trying to fix things I'd drawn wrong. Ugh. I'm sure I learned something from it, though, and that's what counts.


This is something like 10" by 6 1/2". A wee painting. Done in acrylic. A free-for-use photo was my reference.

Aw it's too precious. Looks so at ease like it's getting ready to nap. Love the way the picture seems to be in transition from day to night. Are you painting on canvas and if so, where do you find such a small canvas?

Also, question, is painting reference photos actually helpful in improving, say, painting skills/colouring, for originals? I sometimes get the feeling when I do stuff like this that all I get good at is copying...
