This was the second painting I did for this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge. When I uploaded the first, Zuka Tango!, the color of Zuka just didn't appear the same intensity as the sample color. So for the background on this one, I used mostly Cadmium Red with just a touch of Unbleached Titanium to tone it down. It comes a little closer to the Tangerine Tango color chip.
The reference photo is a gray and white kitten, which I interpreted with Cobalt Turquoise and various blues and lavenders. I'm pretty happy with this one, and I think Parker's grandmother is too!
