WDE Feb 6: The Guardian of the Graves!

It snowed here this morning so didn't want to venture out today ......

This fella captured my attention instead.
Approx 7.5"x5", sketchbook, pen, India ink. More than 2 hours because of dratted touching up - i.e. fiddling!



Thanks for looking/commenting - it's much appreciated.

Just lovely! I’m fond of the way the grass twines into the borders!

The cat is distinctly menacing but the design is beautifully art nouveau. Excellent concept and execution, thanks Maureen!

That border is the absolute icing on the beautiful cake. I wanted to do something like this on mine but I left it till last and was so sick of it by then and lacked the necessary imagination to do it.

Beautifully rendered. There's no way I'd mess with that cat.
