I wanted to do a winged cat, but I wanted to do something more than that. I had a lot of fun playing with all the different textures on this one, the fur, feathers, glass and stone all together made it a challenging piece to do. Especially getting the knotwork in the fur to look like a part of the fur and not something floating over the surface. This is another pen and ink, watercolor and colored pencil painting. 11x17 on cold press illustration board. I discovered while working on this one that I enjoy hot pressed board much more as a working surface.

Awesome! *tags* I really like stained-glass art and it’s really hard to find people who do good stained glass these days. I heard a couple of people in my church talking about how tough it would be to replace our stained-glass windows if something happened. Nice job with this.

So wonderful! The cat looks so real, and those wings are just love! I agree with Heidi, those stained-glass paintings are wonderful!

The knotwork in the fur is excellent, it looks like you’ve shaved it into the fur. Did you use a reference for this? The cat looks so real, at first I thought it was a photo.

This is a beautiful piece. It looks very realistic. Not to mention I love cats. Knotwork has always fascinated me, too. The title also caught my eye because that’s what my name means. (Shaina Leora = Shining Light)

I love this pick. I do think he would be dangerous.
