On the Seine


His favorite place in the world to nap: on top of the couch. He's gotten very loooooong. (And note the "Mohawk" tummy fur here.)



I used mostly pastel pencils on this, to be able to be more precise (because it's not that big), and then a little bit of soft pastel on top of that. I so love how the Sennelier LaCarte takes charcoal (used for a light under-sketch for placement here), pastel pencil, and soft pastel.

What catches my eye is the directional pencil line work and the angles they depict.
And how subtle and nuanced your colors are.
Not a slave to any one medium are YOU!

You could turn out great work with a bottle of White Out and a blank piece of paper.

Lynx muffin is now Lynx pie. He is growing.
