He looks a bit like my cat!! Julia your work is Marvelous!!!

Mel is lovely, Julia, absolutely A CAT! Beautifully painted as always. Well done again.

Gorgeous cat, love the silvery fur. The highlighting of the fur is wonderful.

Julia, your pastel work is good. This is very well done and beautiful...

Thank you all so much - I really enjoyed painting Mel although did have some problems at first due to the very dark card I was painting on - thought it would never cover but got there in the end!

Another great piece of work Julia. Well done!!!

Stunning! I love the looking up view and the cat lying so comfortably on a soft cushion. That cat's expression does seem to say that she knows she is gorgeous - a real satisfied cat! What I admire so much about your work is that you have got that blend of realism and artistry just right. Look forward to seeing this one in the flesh when we next meet up.

This is lovely, the fur texture and relaxed features are conveyed very well.

Thank you Steven, Thea and Lorraine. The nicest thing about people leaving comments is that it makes me investigate galleries that I might otherwise have missed and there really is some splendid work on POL!

Julia yet another stunning painting well done:)Linda

You're a real master of this medium, Julia! Every one of your animal paintings is superb and really special, and this is no exception. Mel's personality really leaps off the page.

Hang on Studio Wall

My friend's three legged cat who is just so gorgeous!
