About this artwork
Inspired by a feline's love for rolling toys, artist Jeff Fleming demonstrates a charming portrait of a cat playing with a green ball. It relaxes on a soft pink cushion with a gentle stare at the viewer. Jeff starts with a pencil sketch and applies oil paint using his fingers then adds details with brushes and string for decorative patterns. I whisk paint in random strokes, a technique which adds a boost of energy, says Jeff.
