Portrait Of A Young Millicent Brown


I’m likely one of the few artists that decides to paint large-scale paintings when illustrating a book.  This portrait of a young Millicent Brown which appears in chapter four of Lucy Crisp and the Vanishing House is 24″x36″.  Not exactly small.  It really held up chapter four (only five more paintings to go) and was fairly frustrating- ie, painting a cat is really hard.  They tend to look demented if done poorly, so I’m not sure if this cat looks demented in a bad way, or demented in a good evil and aloof kind of way. I was going more for evil and aloof.  Anyway, here is your teaser for chapter four. I hope you like it.
