My newest personal painting that's been in the works for quite a while, but happy to finally call it done and share it! This one was inspired by a trip to Italy a few years ago. I wanted to do something with bright and warm colours, and the cats featured in this painting are all based on real life kitties I know! 

Hope you like it! If you'd like to help me create even more personal works like this and follow the process, have a look at my Patreon! I've uploaded lots of WIP images of this painting there and the PSD will also be available shortly :) patreon.com/johis

I followed your streams of this and really looked forward to seeing it finished. I'm so glad I followed the progress, it makes me appreciate the result so much more! It's so picturesque and animated. The cats look so realistic and walls and plants so detailed, I love this. It's such a warm little scene that feels so natural and cosy. Awesome work :)

Overall a fantastic piece! Perhaps the most impressive part is how real the glass looks like! Getting it right is something I bet many artists struggle with but you have absolutely nailed it!

love how wonderfully detailed this is!! the direction is sunlight is hitting creates such a beautiful sense of warmth and that sort of 'midday peacefulness' which i absolutely adore *u* the details on all the different flowers and leaves are simply stunning and so vibrant! and o my god the cats! how they all have their own little personalities and designs! so precious <33

I'd love to see an animated movie with your style of painting. It's so beautiful! It does remind me a lot of my favorite little town in Sicily. :)

I am so happy to see it complete.. it's such a wonderful, warm piece THERE'S SO MUCH LIFE INTO IT :love:
All the cats are out to sunbathe ;; :heart:
Your personal paintings had always some warmth, besides the visual one, that I can not very well express.

This reminded me of a building in New York which had false windows painted on one wall, and one of the windows had a lounging cat painted in as well!

It is lovely, but the cats are either VERY big, or the windows quite small xD
But it's really beautiful. I like the colors and the details

Lhuin Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
Ohh yeah haha I actually made them smaller at one point already thinking the same, but I felt the cats would have become really small to see them nicely if I shrunk them even more, so the windows are just quite small then! XD Some of them were quite tiny in the refs anyway it seemed. Thanks so much! :D

I think it is very cute. You could make a print series with other windows/cats. I would buy it, I guess :D

Beautiful art with magnificent concept!
I don't know why but this piece reminds me of Italy :) And of home in some kind of way :heart: I...I don't know I just have a special feeling around my chest looking at this picture.
The whole artwork looks like it was drawn traditionally, not digitally
