“What Was That?” The lynx painting is finished! I’m pretty pleased with the results, although I may tweak a little thing here and there.
The reference photos for this painting were taken in Montana, but lynx are native to Illinois, where I live. In fact, two of them live at the local wildlife park. The painting is 14 x 18 acrylic on canvas – available for purchase. There is a larger image in the Mammals gallery. © Marti Millington 2016
While working on a 14 x 18 acrylic painting, nothing I did made me happy. I really liked what I had done at the top of the painting but I could not seem to tie it into the bottom. The solution? Use the top of the painting rather than “toss” the entire canvas. I cut the 18 inches down to 11 inches and painted this white tail doe into the winter scene. “Chance Encounter” is 14 x 11, acrylic on canvas and available for purchase.
