Mother & Daughter 1

This composition had two tricky elements: how to differentiate mummy cat fur from kitten cat fur and how to paint the whole thing without it looking like an out-take from one of the more nauseating Christmas ads currently on the telly. 

In terms of over-coming the cutsey challenge, I think an underpainting of  badass scarlet was probably a big help. I also think there is also a mean glint in momma's eye, don't know what you think. The fur problem was more easily solved: the kitten is paler and I softened the edges more.
