Illustration Friday "Camouflage"
This is my cat, Monkey, rolling in the grass trying to cool off.
He also loved to roll in the dust on hot days, is that a sunscreen thing, do you think?
I painted Monkey in watercolour and then did my usual photoshoping for the background.
It's a bit heavy handed but I'm quite heavy hearted as my darling Monkey was killed on the road last Thursday night. His black coat was too good a camouflage for the night.
But you know he had the best of both worlds.
During the day he was my loving snuggle puss, eating, snoozing and cuddling, a total slob .
But come the night he was Casanova stealth cat, out and about chasing the ladies.
He was one of the gang and is missed dreadfully.
