Lis's Cat Phoebe

This is the first black cat that I have painted in any medium. I used Pitt pastel pencils on anthracite Pastelmat. To obtain a rich black, I under painted the darkest fur with prussian blue, then I used black and various greys, pale blue and white to model it.

Hello Jenni, what a perfect painting of this cat. Like she can jump out the frame any minute!

Awesome Jenni. The eyes are brilliant!

Thank you both. I really like pastel, but usually find it a bit messy. However the Pitt pencils are quite hard and Claire Fontaine paper takes a lot of layers with no need to fix.
