This month I’ve been working on getting together a new dummy book to send out – and at the risk of playing favorites and being a bad cat-mother, this one features my cat, Rosalie. The hard part about painting a subject that exists in real life is that occasionally, just when you think you’ve completed your painting, the subject herself will jump in your lap, curl onto her belly and reveal to you that you’ve recorded her tummy markings incorrectly. You’ll fix them, of course (for the sake of accuracy) only to be reminded on a separate occasion that you also misapplied the markings on her toes. Of course, it’s unreasonable to expect a cat to sit still long enough to actually model for her own picture, so you’ll have add those details in by memory.
