Draw something dangerous, a quick centipede.

Everyday in May 24/25

Draw a cat, I'm doubling up on two days of challenges.
When I was small I always wanted a cat but my Dad was strictly a dog man. Here is Pearl, who moves around rather a lot for a cat that sleeps all day.My other cat was featured in last years EDiM.
Now to paint or not to paint? I want to do a painted version to show her colour and markings
