Cat with Green Ball

5.5x8.5 watercolor and ink on Masters sketchbook paper done over the weekend.  Our old cat Bootsie who had long thick hair loved to play with the soft spongy balls.  Here I have used a four color combination to make a mixed black:  First pairing was ultramarine blue + quinacridone burnt orange application, and second was alizarin crimson + thalo green.  The ball is thalo yellow green and some of that opaque color is mixed in his tail.
