WDE 7 February 2018 - Cat Doodle

Thanks Harry for hosting this week and for the fantastic challenge. I left my drawing until yesterday as I was working away from home and I wanted something to do in the evening after work.

I loved the cat photo, it seemed to lend itself to Aubrey Beardsley's style. I drew the cat and the stones in pencil first before adding ink, the rest (apart from the swirly bit at the bottom) I made up as I went along. I used a few pit pens and a Promarker for most of it, then my Promarker ran out halfway through and I finished it off with a Tombow brush pen, which was great for the stippling. It's on heavy cartridge paper and took the full 2 hours.

Thanks for looking

This is gorgeous, the design is so good and the watchful cat dominates. I like it very much.

Love this! The cat and the stones and foliage, just lovely ... and the tree growing up the side as part of the decorative border, so creative. Like I said, love it!

Very nice Art Nouveau piece. I like the way you have incorporated the Beardsleyesque tree into the period frame with its classic intertwined vines. Thanks for getting this one done!
