Kali the cat – drawing in watercolor and ballpoint pen

Drawing of Kali the cat in watercolor and ballpoint penI already did a drawing of the siamese cat Shoko the other day, but now the owner asked my to do one of her other cat, Kali
I enjoy making requests and it’s a good way to get a few links out on other blogs – so if you’d like me to draw something to put up on your blog, just let me know, and I might do it! (No promises, though)
How do you paint or draw a white cat? I tried to paint the light colors that this cat has in its fur, but maybe it got a little too heavy. One remedy could have been to make the background darker and get some effect out of the contrast.. I didn’t see the front paw in the photo to begin with, so it was added in later! Something just seemed wrong !!
