CAT WATCH
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell
Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge
Day Twenty Seven

'Cat Watch'
Leslie Saeta's Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge
Day Twenty Seven
Oil on Panel
6 x 6
100.00/Free Shipping


My cat Teensie loves to sit in this window and see
what's going on outside.  We even placed some bird feeders 
close by so that she (and we) could watch the birds.
I can always tell when she is seeing something
that particularly interests her because that tip of her
tail curls up and starts to twitch!


All of my paintings for this Challenge will be done in a 6 x 6 format,
and my main goal while painting from life
is to LOOSEN UP and USE MORE PAINT...
something which will only benefit my work.

If you would like to join this Challenge, or just follow the
work of the participating artists, just visit her blog:

Of course - animals are my favorite - I can almost see her tail swishing as she watches birds..know that move - so well. I love the filtered softness of the atmosphere that surrounds her. I hope she is doing better. Very nice Claire.

Marla said...

I love this! You've done a lot with an almost monochromatic scheme. The light is lovely.

My cat does the same thing; his tail starts twitching and he makes a weird little chattering noise with his mouth.

Susan Spohn said...

Love this painting. Peaceful, soft, familiar.

Clare, this is fabulous, the glow in the ears... sigh. Wonderful work. I've enjoyed looking at all your paintings during our... almost over!... challenge and I plan on keeping touch with you after!

DMannion said...

Claire, I don't know if my first comment to you went through, so here it is again... I love this painting, the warmth and glow in the ears... sigh, again. I admire your work and will keep in touch after the challenge.

All have said great things. I second all their comments!

Ann Rogers said...

So typical of so many cats, love this, Claire.

L.Holm said...

love this, Claire. So sweet.

Anne Winthrop Cordin said...

So sweet, nice classic composition too.

Linda Nickles said...

You've captured a special mood here, with a great monochromatic scheme. Lovely!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Pattie! I had fun painting this, especially her little ears. She is doing better, but the tummy still seems to be upset. Will be trying to work to get that better now.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Marla - I love that chirping sound cats make! Mine always 'talks' to me as she comes up the steps each morning.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks so much, Susan!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Diane, what a very kind comment! I have been following your work for some time, and would love to keep in touch after this challenge is over!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Meow, meow, Charlotte!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Sherri!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Margaret! She is a sweetheart, and so much fun to paint.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Marilyn!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks, Ann - it definitely is a common cat pose, even with the 'twitching' tail. They're pretty special little animals.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Liz - she is my little sweetheart!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks so much, Anne!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks, Linda - lots of greys and a little pink here and there!

hmuxo said...

She's a beautiful subject, Claire. The fur looks so soft..and love the pink in his ears! I left a comment on your previous painting."Seventeen Degrees", but I think Google gobbled it! another beautiful piece..

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Hilda - she is such a pretty cat. Your remark on my other painting 'Seventeen Degrees' is showing up on my blog. Because I use email verification, if I'm not on my computer for awhile the remarks don't get posted right away. It was probably my fault!

CrimsonLeaves said...

Teensy has the best seat in the house for window watching! And my cats do the same when they spot something interesting out the window...twitch that tail! I love the light and shadow of this piece, Claire!

Nan Johnson said...

Such a wonderful painting Claire!
