Having been a cat lover all my life and always having lived with cats it may come as some surprise to hear that this is the first time I've attempted to draw one. I used masking fluid to keep some of the white areas around her ears white and on some of the whiskers but I am not sure how sucessful this was really because, of course when rubbing the masking fluid away the pencil smudges really easily. Cleo was a pleasure to draw and I may exhibit her at Mellis Arts. Most of my paintings and drawings are currently either committed to or already in exhibitions so I need to pull my finger out and get painting!
