I just caught sight of the cat sitting on the railing one day. I sketched it from memory afterward. I did get to look at the background when I did the painting. Our cabin is situated in the woods and I didn’t really have an idea how to represent the tangled, wild nature of the trees and grasses. So I just took my best shot at it, again, consciously trying to keep it simple. I’m pleased with the way it turned out. Fairly simple and it does capture the feel of woods. You can just see the detail of the steps and the walkway in the background.
