As you can see... I've found a lot of colors in this magnificent face. Photograph curtesy of someone in the reference image library.

C&C please.

Thanks Sandy - after looking at it again I can see the flaws... think I may go back and do some more on it later.

Barb (happy cat)

Another one for the Open Studios show... I hope there are lots of cat lovers who show up.

He's right next to the bowl that says 'tuna breath.' (There's your title!)

Love this one!!!!! The colors are jazzy yet very believable. Maybe just a few quick whiskers on the non-tongue side...? Not desperately necessary--just the kind of thing that can add panache...

Hurrah - Tuna Breath it is!!! That works nicely!!!

I agree about the non-tongue whiskers and knew it was the place needing the attention.

Kate - thanks so much. I was actually dancing around the room while painting - was having far too much fun!!!

Oh Barb, this guy is so real and lively, I'm beginning to wheeze! I can see the fun you had with this piece. It is bright, energetic and full of fun. Definitely a candidate for Open Studio.

Beat me to it! I have downloaded this photo to work with, I love it to bits! Now I have your rendering to give me pointers............. :evil:

You have inspired me to have a bash at a few kitties for an art fair I am doing in October ... mostly, I am taking my prints, but thought I would include just a few furry friends, funny ones like this one, and the upside-down one, and I found one under a blanket. I've done a few cats in the past, just for myself, my own cats, and then did a commission ... am rather liking painting furries, I love them so.

Tho I have a love/dislike relationship with Sasha, my present cat, who is SO stand-offish, you wouldn't believe it.

Deborah...your remark made me laugh...I had a cat with the most awful cat breath, once. Gorgeous loving creature, you had to forgive him. Provided his face wasn't within an inch of yours.

Gorgeous pic, Barb.

Wow - thanks for such a great response from all of you. She's about to enter the mat and frame this morning and will be hanging on a wall within the month.

Jackie - you are going to love painting her - she's hysterical and fun and makes you smile through the entire process.

Stoy - good to see you again!!! Love the drawing stuff you've been working on.

Mikki - come to Open Studios - I'm sure that truck will make it here and it would be fun to visit for awhile. October 16 & 17th Fort Mason.

Give a cat a squeeze? I trust, when you do that, you wear cast iron underwear and welder's gloves.
