Fabulous John, what's the medium? I really like how you've put into sharp focus the face

Superb work John. But he looks too nice - they are pretty vicious!

Absolutely superb, beautifully painted the eyes are particularly good.

Meticulous work John. Excellent.

Stunning John, you’ve captured its features perfectly, even down to the scowl. There is a lot of dilution in the purity of the true wildcat, through the cross breeding with feral cats, I wonder if this will be its downfall eventually.

Stunning cat, wonderfully expressive eyes.

Thank you all for your kind comments. Heather I use Mixed Media, a type of acrylic called Chromacolor and Caran Dache coloured pencils for areas like eyes and nose. John

Absolutely fantastic artwork.

I have to thank Dave Webb for allowing me to use his photograph for reference. Sadly Britain's only wild cat is almost extinct in the wild!
