Four commissioned cat portraits in oils on Masonite boards

Yes, I have a commission from a lady who has four cats. I've already painted her dog's portrait, so it is time to start on the beloved kitties! Note the typed paragraphs of information the owner sent to me, describing each cat's diverse personalities. It always helps me to get to know each animal before I start to paint, especially if I can't see them in person. I needed exact eye coloring for each cat, as the copies always seem to not quiet show the true coloring of the eyes of animals, or people.

This is the only male cat in the group,as well as the largest !

I've laid in some of my darkest-darks, ready to allow them to dry, and add some beautiful color tomorrow!
