Memory of long lost pet


Lovely pencil work Linda and a beautiful cat.

Ah gorgeous cat and a lovely drawing too.

Super pencil work - he looks like he/she was a very handsome cat.

Many thanks Denise, Sarah and Heather. He was a very handsome cat. I had two brothers. One was stripy like a normal ginger Tom and the other was plain, like an Abyssinian cat. He was called Barley, because he was the colour of barley and also because I had just been to Bali. He couldn’t spell so it did it matter, which name we used.

A lovely sketch. The detail is very good indeed!!

Thank you David and Faye for you kind comments.

Very fine, Linda. The medium suits you very well. I agree it doesn't lend itself to quick results. For results like this it's worth the effort.

Lovely work Linda, a wonderful memory of a lost cat.

Thank you so much, Lewis, Katy and Paul. Your words of encouragement are most appreciated.

It’s a smashing portrait of your lost cat Linda, lovely depth to the fur.

Gorgeous! Lovely pencil work

Like the way you have painted the fur and the eyes are very intense. A lovely way to remember your cat and although it may have taken you a while to paint, the result was very worthwhile Linda. Have you tried pastels and pastel pencils? I find them very quick to use.

Beautifully done, Linda!

Thank you Fiona, Anne x2 and Carole. Yes I do use pastel pencils, particularly for portraits from life.

A beautiful cat Linda very well portrayed.

Well, you have created a rather beautiful portrait. I am not into pet portraits etc, but this has something that I like.

Thank you Gudrun and Carole. I guess cats are always a crowd pleaser.

Coloured pencil & acrylic ink on A5 Bristolboard. Still struggling with the media, becauseI want quicker results.
