Cats have the most amazing eyes… you can see the entire universe reflected in their glassy depths.

In this relaxed 2-3 hour workshop we will once again observe and capture the beauty of one of our feline friends. Concentrating on and starting with the eye, we will then move to the fur, using wet in wet and growing washes. We will identify and use exciting colours to capture the cat's personality and finally put in those all-important whiskers.
