Unison soft pastels on ClaireFontaine Pastelmat. 24*30cm.
This is a snow bengal cat which I was kindly given permission to sketch. I was struck by her amazing colouring and regal pose !
I have a soft spot for blue-eyed cats – probably because I have never owned one. I have only learned that there are some blue-eyed bengals since joining cat groups on Facebook, which has been so educational for me.
I am always looking for what will make the subject special – is it the composition, the pose, the lighting, the colours ? Here the cat looked composed, alert, interested, authoratative, … all at once, and her colours were amazing.
