The finishing touches were put on the cougar last night and this morning. I used a combination of palette knife and brushstrokes to finish off the boulder and I used loose brushwork to finish off the background foliage. The whiskers were saved for last. Funny how when painting cats they just don't look right until the whiskers are put on! I'm calling this one "A Moment in the Sun".
