Hand Painted Tiger Oak Cabinet with Black Cat by Diane Irvine Armitage

Today's project was a hand-painted panel on a turn-of-the-century tiger oak music cabinet.  This is a really pretty cabinet made up entirely of tiger oak.  I gessoed the front panel four times and then painted black kitty Tish in oils.  The warm ochres and the greys make for a nice background for the black.  Today's blacks weren't straight from the tube, but a mix of Phthalo Blue, Alizarin Crimson and Burnt Sienna.
And the artist's muse looking in the studio window from the catio.
What a goofball!
