The eyes are definitely looking up!!!
As you can see I've started outlining and highlighting with a very dark grey that if I had to name I'd call "pavement"
Flora Bernstein posted this wonderful photo which perfectly portrayed how greys reflected light and helped define the details on a black cat... and what a handsome cat it is.
So I pulled blacks and greys from my threads... Not only getting a difference in shades but textures using different weights of perle cottons and DMC. I have even pulled blue/black and a green/ black. Both of these actually look black until they are placed next to a black.
But no stitching today as the sun is shining and it's about fifty degrees...warm enough to grab a shovel and head outdoors.
