Badou the Cat

Badou the Cat

This Beautiful Boy is Badou, he appears to possibly be a Maine Coon or Maine Coon Cross. He was adopted by a couple who have purchased previous portraits from me. They wanted one portrait for themselves and one for the people they adopted him from.

I have to say this was probably the hardest portrait I have ever done. Badou has some stunning markings and although that is not difficult to do with one portrait, to do two portraits and make them look identical I found quite difficult. I think I managed it though 🙂

I have posted below the photo I took in my studio of the two portraits in progress. I felt that I needed to work on them together as I wasn’t confident that they would look alike.

At the stage this photo was taken, the one on the left is almost finished whilst I am in the process of starting work on the face of the second portrait.
