Like all my work, the cats begin with a quick loose drawing with ink pen on my favorite sketch paper.I do a few in succession, keeping track by date, and rarely reject any - as long as they show up with some panache.
The one at the top here, I decided should be a Russian Blue - in part to use a color not usually in the cat palette. Cats have such a range of markings and eyes - it's not hard to move forward.
She took a bit more doing, with the details of the accents on her coat. I named the cat at the top 'Charlie' - I love his attitude and he looks great on a clock!
