A romantic view by deRaat A romantic view by deRaat
Oil on canvas (20"x24")
I was intrigued with the parallel of an abstract view through textured glass and my catís optimistic and naÔve view of the world. The glowing light is achieved using an early Flemish technique with an underpainting and transparent coloured glazes.

Thanks. I am sure you could if you really want to. This was really just a slow process of many layers each adding more detail and colour.

Your textures are amazing! The translucence of the ears is fab and the fur looks to touchable. Very beautiful take on a traditional kitty portrait.
