Mozzy - a rather fine cat!

Having delivered this portrait of Mozzy to it's proud owner today, I can now release it on here! This portrait was 'painted' using Derwent Drawing pencils again, with acrylic to bring out the whiteness of the bib and paws. Sometimes pet portraits can be a chore, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It was a bit of a challenge as I had to combine several photographs to get the pose and colouration correct, but it just seemed to go well right from the start and I was quite sorry to finish it! I actually got to meet Mozzy when I took the painting round today and was very happy to see he matched his portrait - phew!

Talking of cats, another felt cat on the way - he needs a face before I can show him though!

Fantastic Caroline, he looks so real in your portrait, the fur is lovely, and the eyes too. Mozzy looks like he's quite a character, I would like to meet him in real life!
You are just SO good at this style of artwork.
