    How gorgeous is she!! You’ve made the graphite look like watercolour in some spots, it’s so smooth and very well blended. Well done!

  • Thank you, that’s an interesting comment. I really must go back to doing more pencil work. So many people loved this at my exhibition. I think I could have sold a lot of prints if I’d had some at the time.

    Thank you , Michelle! I was really happy with how that turned out. I think tabby cats are especially lovely, even in black and white.
