At long last, the final version of Barley! More cats to come, but I've got to get through the Christmas rush of gifts to paint.

This is the beginnings of a little portrait of Barley - the world's sweetest little cat! He's a little mite for a male cat, but is adorned with gorgeous, long butterscotch fur featuring a brilliant white face, bib and mittens. I'm still working on the eyes, as I haven't quite captured the big-eyed gentleness of this cat - or the slightly cross-eyed gaze. A work in progress, but what a great subject.....

As a side note, Barley plays a mean game of laser mouse!
