Made this 8×11" canvas for a friend today to say thank you. She loves her cats.
Therefore I started with just drawing all kind of cats which came to my mind, with right and left hand (left hand for more interesting shapes). I did not take it too seriously as that picture shall just bring her joy.
Then I prepared the canvas with all kinds of torn papers, chose my favorite acrylic colors and mixed them on the canvas.
I made a second and third layer to smooth the background and started scribbling flowers etc. on it with watersoluble color pencils. Then I traced the cats on the prepared canvas, intensified the traced lines with Sharpie, added some more details and some stencils and dropped a little bit of color from my brush.
Hope she likes it when it comes per mail.
