The artist's companion (Stan) - Wanting to get in on the modelling action, Stan has started visiting my studio on a regular basis but unlike Elf, he arrives, finds a space, put his paw over his eyes and sleeps - perfect for drawing as he can stay like that for hours. I decided to add a decorative background to this print in contrast to his black and white coat. I've include a second image below the final print to show where I've purposefully created texture/marks on the cat's body with the last but one colour. The final black covers the rosy-red-pink entirely but a small hint of what's going on underneath can be spotted if you look very closely.
