Thumbs up Re: cat on a rainbow

What a fantastic curvey cat - just beautiful! And beautifully executed!

At first I thought it was odd the composition was a bit odd - the cat looking right but the empty space in the frame to the left behind the cat ... but actually I think that adds to the mood of the piece.

Re: cat on a rainbow

What a neat idea! It wasn't what I expected from the title. I thought it would be a cat sitting on a rainbow with a pot of gold or something. Colorful, graceful lines and stunning.

Re: cat on a rainbow

A simple design but very nicely executed.
Will you do any variations on this theme - lots of possibilities?

Re: cat on a rainbow

For variations a few things come to mind:
- different color bars (maybe even bars in shades of grey with the cat in bright rainbow colors)
- try different poses: maybe an arched back and one similar to the first one but with the tail curving over the body; another with a vertical format with the cat from the front.
- I'm also imagining a little bird stuck into the image somewhere.
Have fun!

Re: cat on a rainbow

The variation in thickness of the lines are superb and the colour repetition - very nice design - looks very cool!
