I am finding my neighbor-cat to be a delightful diversion. He has a nice shape and is fun to draw. Today he made a place for himself on a steppingstone in the vegetable garden and seemed to be stalking a zucchini flower.
I began this with acrylic paint on a nice black watercolor paper, but had trouble getting the paint to flow the way I wanted. I switched to gouache near the end for the grassy areas so I could get a fluid look.
This is a 7 x 10- inch acrylic and gouache sketch on black watercolor paper.
