This first one was the result of the subject `Sunshine and Shadows' at my last AVA session. I know I stretch the subject but this is allowed and I like painting offbeat subjects. I've no idea what to caption this painting!.

The idea is that sunlight is being caught in strips across the cats face. The lines should really be straighter from the actual reference.

Actually not a great resemblance. I'm getting some of these subjects from a book on Edward Curtis and many photos are quite small.I did this quite quickly in the time I had left at my AVA session. Probably foolishly I posted it on my `Portraits' group on Facebook to get the comment `this is a waste of paper'! probably right. I'm now working on another which (I hope) will be much better.
