Amanda has sent me a photo of her painting of a Tonkinese cat. The Tonkinese is a Siamese/Burmese hybrid. You can see Helmi photos on this page.
Without further ramblings from me, here is the painting. It appears to be an oil painting.
Amanda says this about her painting:
This oil study was done from a photo a lady e-mailed to me, it was quite a small, dark, lo res photo and since my style is quite dense its probably not as graceful and elegant as the lady would like. Also I included a lot of the furniture in and didn’t just concentrate on the cat, as to me that would make the cat more a part of the home. The eyes on the American Tonkinese are rounder and wider than the British and the faces and bodies are stockier. I tried to capture the cats eyes and expression and I know how intelligent and curious they are.
Feel free to leave a comment. Amanda says she has a thick skin. But please be polite. I know you will.
Here is a Helmi photo of the Tonkinese for comparison.
