Wildlife, "Gentle Arcata Kitten", Lynn Cohen

This morning I drew this cat we met in Arcata, CA over the fourth of July on a mini vacation there, with
Uni Ball pen as a one line contour drawing, not lifting the pen start to finish from the paper ...
Then I added watercolors ...
She wasn't terribly wild, this little kitten, quite gentle in fact but curious and fun loving!
 Oops, I just noticed I forgot to include the whiskers on the right side of her little face. I was so relaxed while drawing this. A true trip into "the zone"! Wonderful way to start the day!


  1. Nice job Lynn. Really pops with paint.

  2. Sweet! Blind contour drawings can be so much fun to work with. Blessings!

  3. I like doing contour drawings. Well done...the color really adds to it. I am glad you are putting your skool lessons into practice!

  4. S sweet drawing of a sweet little kitten. I did not notice that the right side whiskers not were there before you said it. The mind fills them there. Interesting drawing .

  5. Thanks Cris, Joan, Arnoldo, and Sirkka. I think my mind must have filled in those whiskers too!
