Cats are a regular subject, to be photographed, painted, drawn and digitally doodled.
If you want a subject that is interesting to paint and draw you won’t go too far wrong with a cat…as long as they stay still for a few seconds or minutes!
Mine have a tendancy to come towards me when I try and take their picture. They want a cuddle, forget that phone or camera, its just in the way….
I have given homes to lots of cats over the years, from an old ginger long haired cat we rescued to black and white furry friends and their kittens. Lately we have two black and white cats, brother and sister, they were the inspiration for my batik yin and yang kitties. I also like drawing over photos with an app which has a nice ribbon pen, its called sketcher free.
I’m partial to patterns and colours and these are often part of my cat paintings. I just recently bought a multi coloured rug. The cat really does sit on the mat! Inspiration is part of being creative, and my cats inspire me.
