A Sweet Cat Portrait Commision


I have not used my coloured pencils for a while but when my friend reminded me about a promise I made to sketch a portrait of a favourite cat way back in May...I realized I had to get my act together.
I have spent about ten hours on this so far. The weather is getting HOT again so I am glad to have managed to beat the heat before the sun  begins to beat against the roof of my top floor apartment.
I am hoping my friend is able to give this to her friends who will be arriving soon for a visit from a far away place.

The size is about 12 inches by 10 inches on Arches smooth hot press paper. PrismaColor pencils. From a photo reference.

Maggie's First Birthday

Yesterday Maggie had a birthday party. The three adults present enjoyed quiche and salad and cherry pie with vanilla ice cream while dogs Charlie, Maza and Maggie played. 
My Maggie is one year old. I dressed her up with pink thingies on her head.
Today I am trying to ignore her as I try to get some work done.
