    Excellent work Arie, the sharp details of the whiskers just make this a perfect portrait. Good work.

  • They were a bit tricky to paint, you can’t go wrong on them without ruining something. Thanks Jim!

    I adore this, and that fact that you only took a few hours to create it is even more amazing! The softness of the fur and the clarity of the important bits make this one of my faves. I love this style, as you know, and you do it so well. So proud of my genius :o)

  • Oh go away….genius! LOL
    But, thanks sweety, it does mean a lot to me! xx

    This is wonderful Arie – I find acrylics very challenging, but you make it look so easy!!!

  • I could tell the same about your coloured pencil work, you make those ones look so easy, they’re incredible……thank you very much for your nice comments Karen!
