I draw cats all the time ... I wanted these to be different, so I used my non-dominant hand to draw all of them. (The linework is much shakier in full size.) The cats were drawn separately over the course of a week. I then pasted them all together in one image for posting.
The cat marked with the purple arrow was the one I selected to "take further". I took that tiny cat drawing and recreated it into an 8" x 8" mixed media piece. I glued scrapbook paper onto a piece of cardboard, and used gesso, acrylic paint, ink, and colored pencil to finish it off.
I am enjoying the book so far & will post more soon! If you are working through this book, feel free to post a link in the comments. I would love to see what you're up to!
