I have painted this reference photo before. What I like about the reference photo is the long hair and whiskers of this cat as the sunlight shines from behind her head. It's very dramatic.
That is difficult for me to capture on yupo as the paint slides around on the surface. Some of the whiskers and fur here are wiped and scratched out of the paint film. Others are painted with a little acrylic on a long and tiny brush.
