After working on the Ferret Madonna, I realized that I had skip some very important techniques that I'm learning to use at the Oakley Academy classes.
I need to familiarize myself with the lasso tool to the point of being comfortable with it, so i've decided to try an other funny animal painting, and not skip any (uncomfortable) steps.
This time I picked the painting Man with a Cat by Cecilia Beaux, an American Impressionistic painter, because it has a lot more painterly effect than the painting that I had picked, Lady with a ermine by Leonardo Da Vinci, for the Ferret Madonna.
Here are the sketches that I'll be working with. Some are done in pencil some are digital.
