Re: WDE Jan 5 - Three Little Kittens

This is wonderful Mike! The 3 kitties are adorable. I always say it but it amazes me how you can get so much detail on such a small scale. I love the soft colours too. Thanks for joining in!

Re: WDE Jan 5 - Three Little Kittens

Very nice! You caught their baby softness just right, and their eyes are quite expressive.

Re: WDE Jan 5 - Three Little Kittens

I love these kittens, Mike! You got their motion in their stillness, they're cuddled up but could just as easily tumble over each other or scatter in three different directions. Each expression is natural. They're all looking at different things. Their features are distinct, the textures overall are fluffy and their proportions are so perfect. Gorgeous little painting! Love it. I do ATC/ACEO size too sometimes and it's a lot of fun. Limiting detail makes the ones you put in have a lot of punch!

Re: WDE Jan 5 - Three Little Kittens

Is it true what they say about herding cats?

Well done on these three munchkins!
