Outstanding, Patricia!  :yippee: :yippee: The eyes look great to me. The difference from the lesson helps to make this painting yours. Over the summer we adopted a Maine Coon Cat kitten. She's just starting to come into her own and is taking on that bobcat look. I'd love to be able to paint her someday.

 :thankyou:  Steve for your encouragement. So pleased to hear that you adopted a kitten and you must paint her for it makes the painting of a loved pet so special. Be sure to show us when you do paint her.

Mea,  :thankyou:  so much, you have a way of lifting me up to dizzy heights.  I was worried about the quality of my work because I am working in the night, which seems to be my only free time and my eyes aren't so good anymore so I do struggle but thank you for always being so encouraging. Bless you.

Beautiful painting Juan and Patricia.       

Patricia did you know that there is a "workable fixatif from Krylon" you can add more pastel on it when dried.   Still you did a great pastel
Painting.   
 :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: to the both of you.

 :thankyou:  for your message Danielle.  Yes, I do remember about the workable fixative but I am not to keen on spraying anything for my chest closes with some odours which sends me into a panic as I can't breathe so I leave spraying very much alone but thanks so much for the suggestion. Strange to say, some odours I can handle but others almost kill me.

 :heeha: Patricia!!!  Beautiful work on the cat.  O0   If you had not mentioned the eye I would never have noticed anything amiss....they still look gorgeous to me  :detective: and I'm looking!  ;D   You and I apparently suffer from the same condition..... self-critic-itis  :eek:    No fear....there is a cure!   :stress:      :2funny:

All of my art stuff has been packed away ready for our move up to Belize, but this is the next pastel for me. I should have much more free time once up in Belize.
Cheers, Val

 :heeha: Your cat is perfect, Patricia. I don't even see the eye problem. The cats or yours.  ;) You are producing amazing and beautiful work at a rapid pace AND at night. It seems to me you are handling the lighting quiet well.  :yippee:

Kathy  :thankyou:  for your lovely message. I am SO FAR behind in my artwork and was becoming overwhelmed so I am trying to catch up by doing art in the nights.  Thank you for always being so encouraging which really spurs me on. :flowers: :flowers:

Well..... I have tried the tape  :stress: method, but that hasn't worked so well as it turns out... it slowed me down to a grumble and a mumble.... but it turns out I can still type!  :faint:       :2funny:
I'm sure there is hope for us self-critic-itis sufferers... I'll keep looking.  :detective:

 :think: There's always Dennis' solution....  :knuppel2:       :eek:       :run:         :2funny:
Cheers, Val
