Here we go – I got three fab cats today and decided to go for the Bengal (in the middle)because of its eyes – utterly icy green blue – so delicate and fine.
I drew it first but wasn’t that pleased with my drawing as I made him too short in the body. Oh well. Then I started painting and felt impatient to get the colours creating some form and made myself slow down. Didn’t like him in the early stages as he was so wishy washy. As I loaded more bold colour and strokes of violet here and there that pleased me and developing his mesmeric eyes made me overall happy with his cheeky pose.
