  8. The Twain quote fits perfectly to your battle cats!
    So beautifully painted - how great the leaking ink shows the cat fur.
    Cats are my favorite animals, also the wild big ones! You often paint some, so I think they belong to your favorites too ...

  9. Love the sweet cats and quote. Now that we have two cats, it seems they are everywhere! In your sketch, the left shadow is our Artemisia and the right is Haze Grey - both are young girl cats. I need to paint them.

  12. Wow - so much motion in the cats! And the water-effect of the coat is gorgeous! Only black color - and you created a master-piece! And I like the quote!

  14. Chris, I love cats in general and these two in particular! You captured them perfectly! Cary Grant (our polydactyl black cat) gives these guys two thumbs up:)
