Getting addicted to this animal thing at the moment and last night I started this painting of a cat.  The background is raw umber and for the fur I used titanium white.  The eyes are in lamp black and titanium white.  The only colour that will be in this painting will be in the eyes but I cant do that until it is totally dry, I will then build the colour up in very thin layers of green wash until I think it's right.  I am anticipating it needing about four or five layers.  Looking at the photo I can also see that the cheeks on the cat's right side are a little bit short so I will extend that out a bit.  Cant do it at the moment because I have tidied the background up with more raw umber.

P.S.  I would be really pleased if you could vote for me on the Saatchi Online site, so far I have an amazing 470 votes after expecting to get 0. The link is below:
