Jazy the cat is now finished and sitting very pretty. I have included the photograph I was working from in the bottom picture although I had other really sweet shots sent through via email for additional reference. In the second shot the picture was almost finished but at this stage I like to spray it with fixative and go over the drawing again to deepen the colours and enhance detail. Apparently Jazy recently returned home looking rather traumatised and with a kink in her tail. Ouch! Fortunately it seems to be straightening out again. Maybe she'll take a hint from her portrait and keep her tail hidden underneath her for a while.
Merry Christmas (again)
