Black Cat on Black

Did you ever notice that God doesn't do anything boring? When He gives a fur coat to an animal, even if it looks like a solid color, it is as myriad and varied as the animal kingdom itself. If you look closely at this cat, you will see purple/blues and browns in the shadow areas and silvers and reds in the highlights. I plan to list this pastel on eBay this evening. It is a pastel on Stratmore Pastel paper, matted and mounted on foam core board.

I love the painting of your black cat. I agree with your statement that there is no such thing as a solid colour in the fur of animals. I have painted my "pure white" kitty many times and he also has greys, purples and even pink in his coat. This painting is of yours is beautiful.
