Tuna on a silver platter

This is a new painting I'm working on. I start with a rough thumbnail sketch for the idea. Then do a quick series of value studies for tone and lighting. Then I work on the drawing. Sometimes I take photos or gather photos for reference. Most of the time I prefer to draw directly from my imagination. In this case I just wanted to get an idea of the perspective of the cat faces.
