The top version I painted First. Both were painted with gouache acrylic. However, with the bottom image I used more of a water color technique . (this I have been experimenting with lately) The colors are subtle but my outlines really pop out. That’s what I like.
This Second version I’m going to use in a greeting card portfolio I’ve been working on. I think this is a simpler version. These cats have no markings for a reason. I don’t want to distract from the tummies…They’re most important.
