Colorful Black Cat with Chartreuse Eyes

Colorful Black Cat Painting Available as Print

This cat portrait was completed on May 16, 2019.  It is titled “Black Cat with Chartreuse Eyes“, and it can be found in my Colorful Cat Paintings gallery in my portfolio.  This painting was created with acrylic paints on an 11″ x 14″ wood panel.  It features a colorful portrait of a black cat with bright green eyes in vibrant colors, with various shades of blue and purple against a background of lime green and teal.  This is another in my series of colorful cat paintings, and it is available in my online stores as an art print, home decor, gifts, accessories and much more.  Please read the article below to see which products are in each of my stores.

Here you can see a closeup view of this painting.  I use the natural colors and patterns in the fur as a guide when I choose my colors.  The reference photo that this painting is based off of is from Pixabay.  I took a lot of artistic license in creating this painting, modifying the painting from the photo in several ways.  I made both of the ears facing the same direction, and changed the eye color to green.  The pupils in the eyes were made wider, and the reflection of light on the eyes is more discreet.  I did not use any black in the creation of this painting.  Areas that appear black were actually painted with several layers of dark purple.  The fur is a semi-impressionistic style that I achieved by using a wet-on-wet approach with various shades of blue and purple. The lighter teal color that was use for the highlights was layered on afterward.

Close up view of the Rottweiler painting

Close up view of the Rottweiler painting

Here you can see a closeup view of this painting.  It features a portrait of a Rottweiler dog in bright  vibrant rainbow colors.  I use the natural colors and patterns in the fur as a guide when I choose my colors.  The tan areas of this dog are painted with yellow and orange, with red and magenta in the shaded areas.  The black areas are painted with blue, purple, and green, with dark purple used as a shade color.  No black was used in the creation of this painting.

The Rottweiler is a powerful working breed descended from ancient Roman mastiffs. The breed was established in Germany, where they were used to herd livestock and pull carts of meat to market.  They have a nickname of “butcher’s dog” for this reason.  The breed was named after Rottweil, a town in southern Germany.  They are calm and confident, and wary of strangers. Among their own family they are known to be playful, even silly, and are wonderful companions.

Color Theory Part 4: Color Relativity

Color relativity is how colors appear when they are with other colors.  How colors are perceived by us may be very different than how they are in reality, and are Dependant on a number of factors.  The intensity of light and shadow, the warmness or coolness of the ambient light, and the color of other objects nearby can all affect how a color is perceived. In art and design, color usage can create striking optical illusions which change the perception of color value, tone, and hue. Do you know someone who has hazel eyes that appear to change color depending on what they wear?  Or how about that car that seems to change color depending on the surroundings?  These are real life examples of color relativity.
