|"In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this." ~ Terry Pratchett|
|I started with a sketch of a Siamese cat inspired by the design found in the book TangleEasy Lovable Pets by Ben Kwok transferred onto a piece of gessoed 11" by 14" watercolor paper.|
|The design is lightly sectioned off with pencil and then the tangles are added with Black Micron pens. I use the Apprentice Pigma pen 05 and the usual Black Micron 01, 03 . I try to use light and dark patterns to keep it balanced. I generally work on projects like this first thing in the morning while drinking coffee and searching Pinterest for tangle patterns. I know it looks complicated and time consuming but it really isn't, I find it relaxing and centering.|
