I did these quick charcoal sketches last fall, but they never made it onto the blog. They are based on some photos I took when I attended a CFA cat show in Groton, CT. I love cats, and it was a delight to wander around and see all the fancy felines. Many of their owners were more than happy to allow me to take photos of their kitties. Some made for perfect subjects for sketching. You can see the photos I took in this Picasa album.
These are charcoal on newsprint, 8x11, I think.
Is there anything cuter than a kitten? Maybe a fluffy Persian kitten named Harry. He was off-the-charts adorable.
Yes, these are cats
The Persian female on the left, named "Cleocatra", is staring at "Goody", an exotic male. Exotics are essentially short-haired Persians. Watching the staredown was hilarious. I don't know how these poor cats are able to breathe through those tiny noses, but they are so gentle and sweet.
