Bizou again!

This afternoon I sketched in oil a 3.75 x 5.5 inch study on canvas paper of the cat Bizou. Bizou is the large black and white cat I posted a painting of a couple days ago. This time I focused on his head and primarily his eyes, which are interesting because they are actually bi-colored (particularly his right eye.) Again, limited palette: venetian red, ultramarine blue, naples yellow and yellow ochre (which I mixed with the background hue.) I consider this sketch essentially finished and probably won't visit it again other than to frame it. I am pleased with the eyes, especially because it's a small work  Click on the images to see them larger.
(NOTE: I've edited this post by putting the finished/signed work in place of the in-progress image.)
