08/01: CAT IN COLOURED PENCIL - WIP

I'm really making this one up as I go along.  He is actually a tabby  but I thought I'd make him sandy/ginger coloured.  Who knows, he may end up tortoiseshell colour at this rate.    I'm really just killing time till we know what is happening at the airport tomorrow.      Will we be celebrating at 'Sirena' our favourite beach bar in Corralejo, Fuerteventura tomorrow evening or will we be back in frozen Tankerton warming up the fatballs in the bird feeders?  I've just finished reading an article on the BBC website which suggests that this harsh Winter will be a killer for many UK wildlife animals and birds - I do hope not  :o(

Anyway, here he is ... I've been trying to think of a title for the picture.  Originally it was going to be 'Peeping Tom' but I ended up drawing more body than intended - he's crawling out from under my fleecy top which is hanging on a chair back.   'Undercover Cat' maybe? Any ideas?

Lovely eyes Sue! Great work on the drapery of the fleece, too. How about "Peek a Boo". Hope you are able to get home soon.

Looking good Sue, I love the eyes.

Great job! How about "Oh, it matches my eyes!"

You must have gotten your flight out as I haven't seen you around. Hope you're nice and warm and thinking kind thoughts about all of us freezing here!

Thanks guys ... yes we did manage to fly out on Saturday and were only 2 hours late leaving. Í´m still amazed we got away as we had blizzard conditions Friday night and an additional 8 inches of snow overnight - but the snowfall was fairly localised and once we had driven for 20 minutes or so the weather was much milder with little snow around. Weather is warm but cloudy here at the moment. Our laptop has chosen this moment to die on us so we are using a very basic internet cafe and I am having lots of problems reading emails etc., Hope to be able to post at least once a week though. Thinking of you all enjoying the snow and ice back home ö)
