New one coming...

I've nearly finished my next picture. It's taking longer as I am drawing him from a picture on the internet, rather than from a photo'.

Not only does this involve the difficulty of only being able to draw in front of my computer but also I am having to look up at the screen rather than just across a little way to a photo'. It is like training my 'eye' again.

My pictures usually take a few hours but this is taking several days. I'm coming across advantages in being forced to slow down, though, a fresh look each day, etc.

"Sebastian" should appear here in the next few days. Here he is, so far....

It's very good and expressive ! It's not easy at all to give a cat an expressive look in drawing or painting.
