The gentle side of life, tough guy and his cat or maybe the other way round? I really enjoyed painting the portrait of this pair in a style that is not exactly defineable. I usually paint the Modigliani figures with their elongated necks and staring eyes, this is a little softer but I've still retained the broken outlining style. The tattoos are random but do follow some designs I remember seeing. Main colours are yellow ochre background, deep blue of the denim jeans. Painted in a mixture of oils and ink (used to define the outlines) onto to an edge painted box canvas which is ready to hang on the wall with a simple hanger attached. Signed, sealed, ready to go.
