buddies

(11x15)
 Another cat photo from Paint My Photo, this one by Dracaena.
Trying to show the details and form but not add so much that I go beyond freshness. I could specify more, add details, but I think I'll leave it as is.

(4x4)
...It was fresher before I started trying to delineate all the reflections and shadows in the water! What a mistake to try to do in such a tiny space!

I really love the cat painting - just perfect amount of detail in the forward face and I like how the cat's back in the background kind of fades… The sail is very nice and the boat details in the second painting, but I see what you mean as for the rest. I also admire the shawl treatment in "profile below" and love the hair.

Your cats are wonderful, and very fresh! I like the boat painting, it is a more geometrical representation of water but still very lovely.YOu did a beautiful job capturing the sense of light and movement in the scene.

Laura - these cats are gorgeous - love it that you left the rest to one's imagination. The colors of your reflections are simply love in the boat painting. Enjoyed my visit to your blog. Will be back again soon.
