Noodles, The Familiar to My Stylist, 2013 acrylic on 27.5cm x 35.5cm canvas
My stylist, Stacy, commissioned me to paint her familiar, Noodles. It was the second time I had been asked to animal portraiture a tuxedo cat. Hopefully someones asks me to do another so I have a series and it becomes a thing. I’m particularly fond of Noodles, The Familiar to My Stylist due to its sculptural quality (textures, thick paint) and the swift decisions made during its rendering.
