Drawing of a cat called Zoey in ballpoint pen and watercolor

Cat sketch of Zoey in ballpoint pen and watercolor
This is Zoey the cat from Island-Cats.com A blog about.. Cats! On an island! Go read it! And thanks to the Island-Cats.com for the request!

I didn’t feel 100% “in the zone” for this one. When I keep thinking about what I ought be doing, some of the stress tends to shine through in the drawing. In this case, I think that the composition sufered a bit. I’m quite happy about the watercolor-touch, but she appears to be floatin mid-air and halfway out of the frame. I would have preferred to just focus on the face on this one I think – or perhaps draw the whole cat with a bit of extra space around it.

I’m also on facebook, google+ and tumblr!
Happy Wednesday everyone!

That was my 457th drawing.

    • Thanks a lot πŸ™‚
      It’s a moleskine watercolor sketchbook. I don’t know anything about paper, but it’s the only kind of moleskine that works with watercolor. I haven’t tried many others, but i know that stillman and birns make sketchbooks with really good paper for watercolor aswell. I have one from their “beta” series. My skills really aren’t evolved enough for me to get all obsessive about which kind of sketchbook and paper i use, but i just can’t help it πŸ˜‰
