very striking eyes!! I love that it is a close-up as well instead of the typical head and shoulders.

Thanks everyone! Yes I did get the photo from the ref library, althoulgh you'll never find it using my painting. If you put both images together and drew lines on the computer to see the differences it would look like a plate of spaghetti (hope you understand what I mean) :lol:

What a nice kitty! Love the texture of the fur and the depth of the eyes that you have created.

Love it! What kind of watercolor paper did you use?

Thank you everyone for all your wonderful comments.
Jill I didn't use watercolur paper this time I used Sennelier Le Carte card for the first time and have to say I absolutely loved it. Expensive and eats pastels like you've never known but found it helped the finished painting to look a bit special.

He is real - like a detailed and upclose photograph. Great job of realism.
