Diane Mannion, PURPLE CAT, 8x6" oil/c


My PAINT-A-PET CHALLENGE... this week!
My daughter's cat, Elliot loved to sleep in this bowl as a tiny kitten and it's still his favorite place to hang out or hang out of.   I picked this theme for the Dailypaintworks Weekly Challenge... please visit to check it out or submit your version of a pet painting!

Elliot is actually a gray cat with yellow eyes, so why did I paint him purple?  Wanted to "see" if I could... just shocked my inner vision with imaginary colors!  Purple for dark value, orange and light blue for medium value, and yellow for lights.

Don't forget to hug your pet!
