and now cats

To be honest I didn't really know what a cat looked like, I have never lived with one and because I have usually lived with a dog, cats didn't come close.  So I imagined a cat.  We were to draw 30, I did 25.  Here are the best and the not so best :)

I told you I couldn't draw :):):)        

I bought a copy of this book, from Amazon I am ever hopeful that I will miraculously be able to draw once I get my hands on a new book.  Hahaha

I disregarded the instructions in the first chapter and attempted to draw my own dogs instead.  Here are two quick sketches (that took me all day to do!).  I think I have captured the curly scruffy essence of Murphy and hopefully some of the delightful hairyness of Kizzie Whizz.

He is white, curly, scruffy, with most of his beady black eyes covered by curls and he has an adorable little brown nose.

Kizzie is milk chocolate coloured but has a blonde face.  She has a beautiful heart shaped nose.  A very scruffy dood, with long hair on her face and ears and curls in places.

I am going back to the book now and will follow the instructions this time.  Cats though, I have never looked at cats, except when they are running away from one or the other of my dogs.  I have no idea what I think they look like :)
