Cats, cats, cats, cats
Four cats to be precise.
I am working on some pet portrait commissions that have come from some marketing I've done at a pet groomer's. I do pet portraits off and on throughout the year and late last year put a couple of portraits in a groomer's along with some information to generate interest.
This month I provided a 'Valentine Special' which placed a number of commissions my way, including this one for the cats. Finding time to fit in all the commissions is challenging and I think I'll be working on a couple at a time.
I'm drawing these in coloured pencil , confirming composition and the colour of the toned paper I will be using as well as some value studies. I will share them here in snippets so over the next few weeks you may see a cat face appear now and then. For tonight, meet Katie or part of her anyway.
