Here is the second painting of Freddy. This painting is done with cooler light and colors. I have several new tubes of Gamblin oil paint which I used because I wanted to try out their new colors. In this painting I used Gamblin's Portland Grey Cool, Portland grey Medium, Cool White, Portland Grey Warm, Titanium Buff, Titanium White and Warm White. I also used Terra Rosa and a cheap Paynes Gray from Winsor Newton. The background is Gamblin's Titanium Buff. I love this color. The Paynes Gray was crap so I throw the tube away. No more cheap paint. Gamblin paint is so much better I am sticking with it.

Last August we met friends at Pt. Reyes California for a week of hiking. Their son had spent the previous weekend with them and while on a hike spotted this bobcat in a gully protecting it's kill. He took a dramatic photo of the bobcat. David was kind enough to share the photos with me. Here is the painting I did from David Gray's photo.
