I Paint My Cat Flickr Group

I joined the Flickr group, I Paint My Cat, because I wanted to practice drawing cats...which I find very hard. I don't seem to be able to draw them from life, as they move, so I took the photo below of Gus...our best cat...and then drew him in colored pencil.

Gus, age 14, photo taken yesterday
My rendering of Gus in Prismacolor Colored Pencil.

Fantastic, Sioux. You did a great job with Gus. I also joined the cat group in hopes of getting to draw our cat. Mine sure doesn't look like ours, let alone a cat!!!!

Thanks for the link to the Flickr group, Sioux. I hope that it encourages others to join and share their kitty drawings with us.

Cheers,
Robyn
