Aristocat's fur looks like velvet.. beautiful and classy cat!
I like the crisp clean look of your painting, Val.. nice colors..even if your water does not look green.. I like the blue.  Everyone did a nice job... so many variations of the same subject.  Looks like a fun one to do.

I'm so glad you posted this final portrait of our favorite mascot. And what a final effort it is. Beautiful. No people necessary!

So sorry for your loss  :'( It is heart breaking and painfull when we loose our pet. Your gondolas are great. I love your different approach on colors. I hope I'll be able to show mine soon. I was in the hospital this week with a severe medication side effects  :tickedoff:  :tickedoff: I am well now and today I will paint. I missed painting this week.  :o Doina

I have a photo of him sitting on the desk intently watching Dennis during the lesson.

Val, maybe he was saying "goodbye" to Dennis in his own way since he knew how special Dennis is to you  :smitten::1hug: What a precious picture of "Artisticat". 
No people needed for your painting, it is beautiful as is.

Thank you one and all. Just noticed the lighter building's colour didn't turn out either. Very strange...the photo looked ok before I uploaded.  ???  Gotta love these electronic wonders  ;D
This was a fabulous lesson to do, learned lots of new little tricks and quirks. I'll probably do this one again.  O0
Cheers, Val

Such a pretty kitty!  Thank heavens we have photos to capture precious memories!
This can't be your painting, Val, I don't see a single cauliflower!   :2funny:
Seriously, you've got the perfect painting here.  Love it!   :smitten:

I missed Doina's. Well done. And Batman--I swear you two have exactly the same water floating your boats. Pretty colorful. The details are well done Batman. This is a pretty intricate painting. I don't know for the life of me how Dennis gets all of us through successfully.
