Pastel Cat Complete.


I made my deadline and hopefully the pastel of Poppy which I've called 'Guilty' will arrive at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery in London tomorrow.
It was collected by the couriers yesterday and together with three more paintings will be included in the 2010 Society of Feline Artists exhibition.
I did a bit of tweaking with the background and removed a couple of the flowers which I decided didn't add anything to the overall impression.

It turned out beautifully as always.
Deadlines are no fun!

I like how the green of the eyes matches the green of the background.

Makes the cat seem a bit magical that way!

As I said before, Beautyful, Poppy looks a lot like my Sibelius!

Beautiful work Gayle! I love the cat's intent gaze and wonderful details.

This cat is thinking about something . . . standing up with a long stretch, going after that butterfly!, back to sleep, is someone getting to the dinner bowl first! Always some excitement! What a beautiful kitty! Congratulations!

Your work is gorgeous! What type/brand of pastels are you using to get such detail?
