Ragdoll Cat in Coloured Pencil

This is my latest commision, a stunning Ragdoll cat. I'm drawing her in coloured pencil on Fabriano Artistico Hot Press watercolour paper in extra white. The photograph is a delight to work from, it really is a pleasure of a commission.

Beautiful start Gayle.

I too had a wonderful Ragdoll cat reference to work from recently - they have such wonderful eyes don't they?

Look forward to seeing progress on this

This is beautiful Gayle, what a lovely cat. Each time I look at your work I am in awe!
Did you get your 'step by step fur' instruction packs done? I would like to purchase them if you did.

You have a nice portrait of your Ragdoll there Gayle. It's very nice! :-)

By the way Gayle, you might want to check out this website Floppycats.com, it's a great website featuring Ragdoll cat owners and Ragdoll cats like yours. You should submit your stories with your Ragdoll there. :)

Guidelines are here: http://www.floppycats.com/ragdoll-of-the-week.html and an example of one is here: http://www.floppycats.com/shadow-ragdoll-of-the-week.html and then submit it all to info@floppycats.com

Hope to see you there! :)
