13/04: RAGDOLL CAT - 99% FINISHED

Another day where I didn't get as much time for artwork as I'd hoped ... but the guys are working wonders in our garden and I'm looking forward to getting out there at the weekend and tidying up the beds and pots and sowing seeds etc.   These lovely guys turn up on time, are polite and friendly and ultra tidy .... so I found myself dashing off to the supermarket to buy biscuits and cakes to offer with their hourly cups of tea ... things I don't do for my own hubby :o)    What a sign of the times eh!!

Anyway, the ragdoll cat is just about finished.   It needs some tidying but I'll come back to it in a day or two and look at it with fresh eyes.

I have another three cats on my shortlist - then it will be on to some wildlife art for a very welcome change


Given the angle of the pose and to accommodate his whiskers, I will slightly offset the portrait in the mount/frame and it will look something like this:
