It's the Eyes--Original Cat's Eye Portrait

I just couldn't resist painting a cat's eyes again. Something about the sparkle and depth draws me to painting these eyes. While I practiced a number of things in my studio today, it's the eyes that I like best. The eyes of this gray kitty were created with a mixture of Sap Green and Yellow Ochre oil paint on a 5x7 inch black gessoed hardboard panel.
