I have another commission to paint some sister cats called Sam and Ella (boom, boom). Sam with her short fur is the easiest cat to understand visually. Ella has long fur which does not even reflect her body is tricky.

Choose a pose?

The boys with their Mother.

The Trio


I have met the boys for my new portrait commission and they were a delight. I now offer three poses for their parents to make a choice. I emphasis that these are not good liknesses but ideas for how the painting is going to look. Two are small sketches and one is a tracing of  two combined photos. When a choice has been made I will do a more detailed drawing.

Poses for the next commission.


I have finished my last commission and I have started the prep for my next one. It's a triple portrait of three boys. I work from thumbnails (small sketches) and photos. The boys and I have not met each other yet so these sketches will be usefull for comunicating the poses I would like to see.
