Sleeping Kitten by RK Schlueter

Oil on 6"x6" panel, I completed this painting in one pass which I always love for the immediate gratification and intensity. After the painting is finished an hour or a day passes and I will doubt it's completion and change it and then it's not alla prima any more ... it's not easy to know when a painting is finished. Thank you for visiting!


  1. You perfectly described that alla prima experience - elation followed by doubt - we know that tug...
    love your work Rachael
