Merlin On Black


Merlin On Black, originally uploaded by Cathy (Kate) Johnson.

I just kept following the Merlin around, this afternoon...he moved at least 6 times during the drawing of this little portrait, obviously on a sheet I'd used before--the upper sketch is close to a month and a half old. (He's starting to catch up with his big ears!)

He brings a lot of joy into this house...and laughter! I still miss the ones I've lost in the past year and a half--it has been a very bad period for a houseful of old and aging cats--but my beloved vet Pete told me the only cure for that was a kitten.

So....Doctor's orders...Mad Merlin!

This is wonderful, Kate. I so admire the way include all that detail without over working it! Casey
Thank you, Casey--I don't get time to overwork, he's so kinetic!
aw! the light on the black paper really shows off Merlin's ear fur - I love that long fur inside their ears. so cute in kitties!!!
I love the long hairs too! Even in a kitty with a short coat like Merlin, they're luxurious...

Beautiful sketches Kate...the face is just stunning!

Thank you, Ronell! I'm just going to have to give in and sketch him from a photograph to get the eyes OPEN, I think!
