I confess..I let my paints get pretty dried out. I managed to scrape together enough paint to scratch out this cat from a photo reference. I was reluctant to put out new paint for some inexplicable reason. Perhaps it was economy driving me.
And you know, painting cats is much harder than it should be. They have such delicate stubby little faces and it does not take much at all to have them wind up looking like foxes or dogs. One false move and you'll have a canine instead of a feline. This is painted over a bad painting of a woman who looked more like the actor Ben Gazzara than a woman. Painting can be an altogether very funny business.
