Thankyou very kindly Anne. :) I like the whiskers, but I painted them a bit too thickly..

White whiskers on a dark background are always a nightmare to draw/paint I think, but it looks really cute the way you painted them, and whiskers are just great things in general :-)

You did very well, Kate. The patterns on the fur and the eyes are very appealing. The whiskers seem a bit too thick, but understandable because of the nature of watercolours. Well done!

Beautiful ^^ I love how you painted the fur and the whiskers. The pink in the left corner is so sweet, I can't wait to see it in the natural light.
Charming, I love it :)
