I debated whether to start on the walking lion or save him for last. After procrastinating for a while, I decided the couch would be next. The couch felt like an anchor and its color would help dictate the rest of the "real life" elements.
To make the fabric look like a microfiber, I used a blending brush to soften the multiple blues' edges.
For the floor, I mixed some light warm and cool colors and applied the paint with a small angle brush. I made strokes the length of each board.
As you can see, our cat Scratch was particularly excited about this section. A constant studio companion, here he seems more enamored of sleeping on a couch than watching me paint one!
