  • This is Boris....a very old (and dare I say ugly) Siamese!
    Hope to make a start on him tomorrow!

    He certainly looks old @Valley Gardener but no cat is ugly! :/ He looks as though he could tell a few stories and Boris certainly suits him. I am sure you will be able to capture his rather sad look. Personally I think he's lovely and looks as though he needs some TLC.  :)
  • The painting is to be a surprise present for his "Dad" who idolises him! I'm getting used to his boney looks now!

    I am looking forward to seeing your painting of Boris. He seems quite satisfied with himself in that photograph. I bet the hours fly by when you are painting VG.

    Boris is lovely and typical of the 'new' breed Siamese with an over-pointed face and big ears. I much prefer the old breed standards which are now making a come-back where the face is not quite so 'pointy'.

    The owner told me the colour of his eyes as the photo wasn't good,just showed them as a black area.It's to be a surprise for her husband (his cat) I just hope she's not expecting an exact photographic image!!!😀😀😀

    @Valley Gardener I think you have caught Boris very well. The painting looks as if you have had no trouble at all, and I am sure his owner will love it.
