Merlin

Oil on previously painted panel.
I love painting over old paintings, it's an adventure, sometimes the work underneath sets the tone even if it ends up being painted over, sometimes just a strange texture looks cool. I am surprised how this inspires me, and inspiration is the icing on the cake!

Merlin looks like an 'in command' kind of cat. Nice painting.

Keeps the eye looking, wonderful brush work and I love the idea of painting over older work.

Такой серьезный и грустный кот
