Cats own us, we do not own them. They are independent, mystical and sometimes aloof. They choose the people they want to be with and it is a privilege if they choose you.
Based near Grantham in the UK, I have been painting and drawing cat portraits for over twenty years. Like other cat artists, I really love painting cat portraits. They are always an absolute delight. Their fur, their whiskers but most of all their eyes are an endless fascination for me.
On the right are some examples of my cat portraits. If you move your mouse over each cat portrait it will tell you what medium it is painted or drawn in. If you click on a cat portrait it will take you to an enlarged version of the portrait. You can then also choose to enlarge the cat portrait further by clicking the full screen icon.
Cat portraits are good in any medium, but pastels are especially effective for showing the detail of their fur and whiskers.
