Sinister Feline shows the inner evil kitty in every house cat no matter how well hidden. They all have their moments. My first strokes in Sinister Feline were the eyes. They really tell the tale, don’t you think?
As I paint this type of painting, which I call an intuitive painting, I start with a white gesso’d substrate and use a brush with india ink to start painting random lines. I then allow the painting to basically paint itself. It morphs into a scene that I see intuitively and I pull out what wants to be seen. I never know what the final painting will look like entirely until the piece tells me it’s finished. After the india ink, I paint mostly with metallic acrylics but also non metallic. I like to use vibrant colors. The end result for the original is a shimmering beautiful piece that reminds me of a painted mosaic. The flatness of the india ink and the contrast of the shimmering metallic is something I like very much.
I created this painting of an evil kitty while thinking of how cats probably view themselves. Lurking, waiting to attack your ankles after they’ve purred and rubbed all over you to make you putty in their paws.
Prints will not be printed with metallic ink. Only the original contains it. The original may come up for sale.
I am very drawn to this style right now, so please check back for more to come.
