"Watching and Waiting" Acrylic 6" x 8"

Finished the cat this morning and must say I've enjoyed it from start to finish and I'm really pleased with the end result. I had orginally been calling it The Dozing Cat but when I finished and looked at it I had to rethink the name. The new title Watching and Waiting is a better suit. He is obviously got his eye on the birds that are skipping and dancing around the bird station. Just waiting for that moment when one of them is seperated from the rest and has dropped it's guard. Just a typical cat.
I've added all the work in progress photos so you can see how it developed. I'm off to think about what next will be on the easel. A landscape perhaps autumn is just around the corner and I love autumn colour.
Thanks for looking in and enjoy what's left of the weekend.

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

One of my favourite poems :)

Well, your hand and eye framed this domestic tiger's symmetry :)

I like Blake too.
