I really enjoyed painting this one! Of course, this is my cat Igor—caught in the middle of a yawn. He looks like some sort of demonic monster, but it was just a perfect moment in time.
This was my submission to the Make it Move challenge. I don't know whether I achieved a sense of movement, but it was good for me trying out something new. I'm really pleased with the looseness and spontaneity of the brushstrokes (at least, in some areas). In a few places, I smeared the paint with my finger. Which is not a recommendation; paint is full of horrible ingredients and you shouldn't get it on your skin.
Oh wait, I remember now—I titled it "Contagious" because yawns are so contagious, and also because he looks like he might be rabid.
