Sketch your cat

Paint the background first, it's difficult to paint a

loose wash after you have spent hours carefully

painting the cat. Do it first


 In soft wet-in-wet washes paint in the first colour.

There should be no hard edges

 cat3    cat final

 Continue with the same wet-in-wet washes in a

darker tone


 Paint in the fur with a rigger, noting the direction

of the fur. Paint in eyes carefully using the same

blue as the background. Lastly add in whiskers with

a rigger and white gouache, using 1 stroke only
