Well, the shiny ornament isn't an animal, but... it's a preliminary to a planned pastel painting of the ornament and this cat shown at the top in her window looking out upon her farm.

Sissy Cat and Shiny Ornament Page (Life)
3 1/2" x 5"
Pigma Micron 01 and Sennelier watercolors
Pentalic Nature Journal 100lb watercolor paper.

We have three outdoor barn cats, two boys and a girl, plus three indoor cats, all girls, so the farm is well managed by felines! Sissy is a small Maine Coon, only 12 or 13 pounds so she's tiny. The outdoor Queen is about five pounds of regal majesty and invisible against fallen leaves.

You have caught the way a cat watches through a window perfectly Robert. Super sketch. Would love to see a photo of Sissy if you have one.

Lovely sketch of Sissy cat, I love the ink lines to show the long fur. It looks like she knocked an ornament off the Christmas tree and is trying to pretend she didn't do it :). I hope you share your pastel painting with us.
