Siamese Cat Pastel with Block in and Palette SOLD
I have posted this painting on my website blog but I thought I'd post it here and include some photos of my initial block-in and the pastels I used for the painting. The painting is 8x10 on Wallis Belgian Mist. I did my initial block in with a black hard pastel. I went right into the painting with a selection of soft pastels which I choose before starting. I layer my colors by value rather than color which accounts for some of the unusual colors that make up the cat's fur. I really enjoy painting cats!
