Circus Cat #4

It’s a cat’s life.  Sleep, eat, sleep, chase the dogs. If only there weren’t these little hats. And posing for paintings…

Circus Cat # 3

With a background color chosen for the  #colour_collective challenge, using #moroccanblue, this is my third in the circus cat series.

The cat is watercolor.  I was asked on the previous cat painting how I got the fur strokes.  Those are done with a rigger (or liner) brush. There’s a bit of ink around the eyes and the nice flat background is done with gouache.
