Portrait of a Siamese Cat

'Toblerone' 8x10 pastel
I am getting ready for a big cat commission and did this painting today as both a demo and a warm-up for me. I wanted to demonstrate how I layer pastel to make more interesting colors than just using what we think of as the local color. So for this cat which we might say was brown and cream.....I used a combination of blues, purples, reds and greens. Much more exciting and fun!
