Grey Cat

oil painting of a long-haired grey cat
A beautiful long-haired cat painted in a palette of Prussian Green, Burnt Umber, Warm White (Gamblin) and Portrait Pink.With a dab of blue for his eyes. 
Once the painting was dry, I went back in to the shading on his coat - in order to "thicken up" the fur a bit more. I dry-brushed on a grey mixed from the blue of his eyes, the pink of his ears and the green from the background. I felt it made all the difference and pulled the painting together.
