One Hundred Cats, first 30

After drawing one hundred hands, one hundred horses, thought I'd work on some cats! Working on that many sketches makes you familiar with the subject. These were from a childrens book about cats, it was great to see the skeleton!

Siamese nice pose, I should develope this into something more than a quick sketch!

Great cats, especially the flip and the skeletons. You make the 100 mark look much easier. Maybe I'll give that a try sometime, but will have to come up with a subject :)

Do develope the siamese sketch, although it's lovely as it is now. I miss my cat but she would never stay still long enough for me.
Enjoyed my visit.

Wow, you have really captured the essence of a cat. I love your line quality. It's so sensitive to the form.

Hey Lyn, Why have you been paying for a model when you've got these great ones at hand???

These are lovely drawings. Nice to see your progress!

Thanks for your message on the EDM list about our book swap. I am enjoying looking at your blog, especially as I often draw my cats. I have a wonderful book about drawing cats - an English one - you may have it. The author is Lesley Fotherby. It's quite old, but you sometimes see it 2nd hand. I'm in awe of your glass. I would love to be able to do that, but I am doing too many things already, so I just buy pieces sometimes.

Fabulous cat sketches, Lyn. I love drawing cats and dogs. I wonder what that's all about?
