Silver Tabby Cat in Oil Pastel 2

Sold

I really enjoyed working with oil pastels and the first cat proved to be a hit so I've painted a second one.
This is also 4 x 6 on Duck Egg Blue Ingres mountboard.
I've added some Caran 'Ache Neopastels to my set of Sennelier ones. These have a really nice range of grey and brown and are slightly harder than the Senneliers which are really soft. I found it easier to create a sharper line although the whole effect is softer than my usual coloured pencils or acrylic.

Absolutely beautiful Gayle!! I have never worked with oil pastels even though I have a set of them. Didn't know they could produce a painting like this! Of course when YOU are the one wielding the oil pastel, it's a given the paiting will be gorgeous! :D
