Yuki the Snow Bengal

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.
