The Art of Michael Brugh

Painting “Sleepyhead,” step 1

Step one of Michael Brugh's oil painting, "Sleepyhead."

Step 1

A new kitty. I liked the reflection of the orange and white cat on the smooth surface, plus the contrast between the warm bright colors and the darker background. I probably put more details in than I needed, but I invariably need more reference after I get started, and having it on the page is better. I can always simplify the drawing during the transfer to canvas.
