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.)
