This jumping black cat is playing with a feather, tossing it into the air and pouncing on it. I really wanted to get that flow as he leaps and lands, really focused on the chase, so I painted him in watercolour on 20x14 inch Fabriano Artistico paper and let the colours run out behind him.
He's finished with oil pastels to get that dark black coat with hints of fiery colours coming through from underneath. And runs of thick acrylic here and there.
He comes flat, wrapped in tissue in a gift box to protect him.
