This is my first attempt at a cat portrait. The most difficult part of the process was getting a good reference photo. Patches is a 24 year old feline that was not amused with the camera. C&C welcomed.

Wonderful job on patches! He/she has that "don't bother me" expression, great job!

I can't see it either.
There is a red X where the pic should be.

A lovely portrait of Patches - well done! I agree that a good reference photo is hard to come by - the only time my cats remain still for the camera is whilst asleep. Gail

wow 24 yrs old... is that a record.... the paintings amazing btw... it has everything you could wish for in a painting. I feel very sorry for the guys getting the red x, you are missing a treat.

I really appreciate the comments made here.

Paul, I also was surprised to learn the cat's age...she is so spry. This is in part why the owner commissioned this work.
