Painting My Cats in Acrylics: A Step-by-Step Guide Video

If you would like to learn how to paint a cat, then this step-by-step tutorial will help! I share my process of making a cat painting in acrylics, from choosing the right reference photo to capturing their unique personalities on canvas.

I paint in contemporary rainbow colors. I am a full-time professional artist. I sell my cat paintings and other animal artwork at art fairs throughout the Midwest. My art is also online on my website.

I've painted over 65 cats so far, so there are lots to see! I paint all types of animals, but cat art is my absolute favorite! This cat painting is a portrait of my cats, Mr. Samadhi a tabby cat and Panda Bear a Manx.
