Five cats in colour pencil

Commissioned portrait of five cats. Drawn with Derwent Lightfast pencils on Winsor and Newton smooth surface cartridge paper, A3 size. From client’s photos and shared by kind permission.

A previous client recommended my work – thank you! The new client wanted a colour drawing, as the cats are all so different. I explained that I don’t often do colour pencil drawings but she was happy to proceed. The drawing took some time and I kept the client updated with work in progress photos.
This was quite a challenge for me: I find working with colour pencils quite different from graphite pencils, with which I am much more familiar. Happily, the client and I are very pleased with the finished work.

The following photos were taken as I finished each cat. (You can see the corners I use to fix the paper to my drawing board.)
