Up close - Pumpkin
Super difficult to photograph this one. I used a scanner and two different cameras and am still not thrilled with the result. Sometimes the photography is harder than the painting, because the camera - like the brush - has a mind of its own. This one is a 10"x8" so Pumpkin's face is possibly a bit larger than life-size. I think the larger you paint a cat, the more unsettling the painting becomes. I suppose you are getting closer and closer to a mouse's-eye view. That is not a good place to be.
