It's not the easies cat to photograph. The night tripper walks in a Phthalo Blue sky. The cat is almost fluorescent pink with purple spots. Note: the "Japanese Stamp" was not good in the first photograph. It has been retouched later (see other pics).
This square is inspired by Japanese stamps. It says "Sho-Zu" (Sjors in Japanese).

This must be a holy cat in a hot environment. At least, I think it is. The background look like stormy flames or lava. Hence the name, Fire Storm, which is written with silver characters on his body. On his body, you can see also an Japanese inspired stamp. From the photo I found from an on-line Japanese shop. It seems the stamp means "Luck", although I usually use "幸運". I very much love the use of Phthalo Blue, in combination with silver accents.
"Holy Cat, Fire Storm". This cat has bronze whiskers and silver grey eyes.
I haven't been painting for months, but I picked up my paintbrushes again to create some last cats for 2012. Meanwhile enjoying a nice beer.
This is Hopper. It was also a little finger exercise. I got some new brushes and tried a technique with wild strokes on the canvas. I sometimes use a similar green/yellow striped combo as background, but this time I made a "grass" cat. I used a turquoise lining to accentuate the contrast to the red and blue background.
