Captain Sid


This was a Christmas gift for my sister: a painting of the late Sid the cat, in his favourite jacket with the nifty shoulder pads. Inspired by portraits like these ones; and also by this portrait of (strangely enough) Bill Murray – painted by Steve Payne, after George Dawe – for which I used the non-Bill Murray parts as jacket-reference.

There’s a lot that could be improved in this, if I had more time; but fortunately the frame is quite forgiving.
