Another commission completed…

This commission was undertaken from a photo taken by my wife Cath in November. Cath took over 100 images and owner Helen and myself decided which best showed his character. He is 15 years old and Helen was delighted and nearly in tears when she received the completed painting for Christmas. As usual I spent a lot of time on the detail of the fur, whiskers, eyes and so on using pastel pencils, with soft pastel to fill in the background layers on Canson MiTientes Touch pastel paper.
