White Turkish Van

White Turkish Van
 Acrylic on canvas panel
This is re-do of a painting I did a while back for the "White on White" challenge.  That painting had a pale blue background and I always felt like it was a little washed out.  For this one, I went with a really dark blue background and I think the white cat really stands out now.  
The Turkish Van is also called the swimming cat, and although this one has two amber eyes, they sometimes have one blue and one green or amber eye.  Lovely cats!


  1. Gorgeous eyes, and you are right about the background, dark colours show off a white subject better.

    1. Thanks, Diana! I think the contrast between the blue ground and the amber eyes really sets them off also.
