    I love cats; I love this art work! ;-)

    In particular, I like the contrasting mix of simple outside/complex inside; too, the many different lines/tones; such marvelously precise touches using white highlights; but, especially, the way the whole lively, innocent, sweet, cunning, always very highly aware character of the cat comes across really strong.

    NOTE: This drawing has GREAT rhythm of lines.

    One can never adequately sum up a work of art by using words; instead, all one can do is to merely ‘try’; I guess, that’s the reason why they say, ‘one picture tells a 1000+ words!’

    She looks gorgeous, terrific study Martin! The colour of the paper, the pencil, the white and some yellow is all that is needed to come to a wonderful result! And those eyes of course!!
