A friend of mine asked me to do some small drawings of her cat for a framing project she’s working on (she needs 3).  Here are a few preliminary ones.  I’m working from photos, and I find it difficult not to get fussy, so I’ll probably do a few more of these until I get it right.

    I find cats not easy at all! I love these! So spontaneous, and real ! Wonderful and expressive!

    Cats are indeed difficult to portray. Yours is nicely loose and fluffy :)! Love feline mannerisms you have caught!

    Love these, Casey! Fuss all you like but each of these is right in its own way. I’m particularly fond of upper left, upper right and bottom right. You should review Andy Warhol’s pen and watercolor cats, Alexander Calder’s ink animals (I think there’s a cat) and maybe one or two by Cocteau. Your friend will be thrilled!

    Your kitties are lovely expressive…I like them all and I’m sure your friend will be very happy with your finished drawings!

    Hi Casey, I always enjoy looking at your watercolors. The lines and shapes are poetic. You capture the feel and gesture of a kitty superbly!
