On Facebook a couple weeks ago I held a drawing for a free 5 x 7 pastel painting of a favorite pet. Andrea was the selected winner and she sent me a couple photos of her sweet cat, Prim, to use as reference. For this portrait I used a sheet of velour paper, which is specifically made for pastel use. It was my first time using it, so there was a bit of a learning curve, but it was still fun to do.
I am pleased to introduce you to "Prim"!

  1. Prim has a mysterious look on her (his?) face. I'll bet the fur was tricky to work with - all those shadows and layers.
