How to paint fur of a cat is quite a difficult task, the
example opposite shows the fur to the left of the cats head and here I am painting over this underpainting of the fur with light pastel strokes to indicate hair strands.
The whiskers have been painted in with quick deft strokes as have the highlights on the nose and forehead with almost pure white and more of the form has been added to the forehead with this same colour.
Here we have the finished portrait with finishing touches added all over the cat like highlights in the cats fur, eyes and paw.
A close up of the cat portrait showing reflected light in the eye lens, we hope you have enjoyed this how to paint a cat demonstration.
