the ginger cat ...

It was too cold outside to go sketching during my lunch break so I've been in the office playing in photoshop with the scan I did of the cat in the basket - just to get an idea of which colours to use. Here's what I came up with as a starting point ...



It's a little pale, but I'll bear that in mind when I work it up further in watercolour (when I have the time).

I've also got some ideas in mind for Mother's Day cards - I've said I'll do one for my boyfriend's Mum too ... I want to make a start on those at the weekend, as I have to send the one to my Mum to South Africa (that can take a while!), so hopefully I'll have something to post here next week ...

I love the scritchy scratchy feeling of the cat, do you know what I mean, a kind of Gerald Scarfe-ish feel about the line? Looking forward to the watercolour version.

Hi Gail

You have captured a cat's look of inscrutability. I like your style.
