ORIGINAL CONTEMPORARY WHITE CAT PAINTING in OILS by OLGA WAGNER

Doing pretty good so far...Got to paint every day in November -

Same white cat from two days ago - just a different orientation...Interesting to note is that NO white paint was used to create the body of this "white" cat. Instead, I used Lucas Beige, which is creamy in color and has a very buttery texture.

At the end, I did use a bit of Gamblin Radiant White for the eye reflections and a few whiskers...

ORIGINAL CONTEMPORARY WHITE CAT PAINTING in OILS by OLGA WAGNER

Can you believe that we are already in November. Where did this year go?

Here we have a white cat that has a lot of drama to it. I painted it on a Transparent Orange Background and have that background showing throughout the painting. I hope you enjoy this one!

Day 17 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge organized by Leslie Saeta brings yer another Panda closeup.

I don't know what it is about Pandas...I find painting them very relaxing. It's probably the color palette that is very soothing as compared to the colors used on a rooster...

I used palette knife to create this bad boy... There are days when I feel like getting messy - and messy I get when using the knife...I guess it's because I also supplement the knife with my fingers...There is nothing better than feeling buttery softness of the paint under your fingers :)

"Loving Color" Day 10 - ORIGINAL ABSTRACT BETTA FISH PAINTING in OILS by OLGA WAGNER

Day 8 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge organized by Leslie Saeta brings a fun abstract little painting of my new Betta.

For those who don't know yet, we had a new addition to the familiy..."Mister Fish", an Elephant Ear Betta has joined our ranks. Scroll down to see his picture...

Originally I stared this painting with brushes in my usual style, but as soon as I laid in the shapes, he fish begged for bolder, more exciting action of a palette knife. And that is what he got!

Yes...Yes... This came out a bit on an abstract side, but it fits with the fun personality the Betta.
