The Zorn Challenge, Painting a Cat with a limited color palette PPF

The challenge at Daily PaintWorks this week:
Paint something using only Black, White, Red and Yellow Ochre
This 4 x 4 was done with Acrylics on a wooden panel using my son's photo of his new kitty.  It doesn't look anything like his cat, but I like the end result and the challenge of using so few colors.  A little frustrating, but I do love a challenge.  His actual Christmas present is still on the easel getting final touches.  This is the 4th Pet Portrait Painting I have done of his cats.  I will post the final one next week.  It better be done by then because I have to have it in the mail by the 15th!

For auction on my DPW site.
