Painting Challenge: Continuous Line Pet Portrait

We recently had a challenge to do a continuous line portrait of a person.  This week’s challenge is to do a continuous line pet portrait.   Keep your pen on the paper to do the complete drawing.  When you lift your pen, the drawing is done!   Then add watercolor.
