This little cutie comes from the Daily Paintworks Whole Cat & Kaboodle challenge presented by artist Dreama Tolle Perry. I’ve had the urge to paint a cat lately (that’s one thing I don’t see at the State Fair), so I had fun with it. I like how the cat in Dreama’s reference photo was sitting on a red upholstered chair, which threw some nice warm tones on the kitten.
