Kitty Surprise

I'm not sure who is the most surprised, the faery, or the kitty cat! In my mind's eye, this is one of the faeries who frequent my garden--I am sure there have been more than one skirmish between cat and fairy folk over the years. It is my belief the winged ones love teasing the cats.

I know, I know--I have a GREAT imagination!

I did the first part of this drawing in graphite. Once that was done, I carefully drew in the lines using India ink. Once the ink was good and dry, I erased the pencil lines and used my beloved Prismacolor pencils to achieve the bright effect you see here.

Another amazing drawing, Beth! The texture of the cat's hair as well as kitty's brilliant eyes are especially stunning. And what a little mischief-maker your fairy is!

I am in absolute love with this picture! I will think of it when I see the cats outside suddenly jumping around for no reason.

I never thought of the faeries as causing the cat fights outside or their howling. A great drawing for Halloween.

Hi how are you?

I was looking through your blog, and I found it interesting, and inspiring to me, so I thought why not leave you a comment.

I too have a blog that I use out of Southern California here in San Diego.

Mostly it's a collection of artistic expression, and I have many friends with the same interests, maybe you can become my friend, and follow, and I can also follow you, if that is okay.

Well I hope to hear from you soon, and or read about you….LOL

Sincerely,
Jesse

I love the expression on the cat's face--and you've done a fantastic job with the eyes. And yet again, I could picture this illustration in a children's book. Well done!
