This is 20 x 16 inches on Fisher pastel paper. I'm using a mix of soft pastels and pastel pencils. I put down a layer of soft pastel as a base and then work over it with the pencils to add the detail.

Several months ago I started the bald eagle using pen and ink and a pointillism technique and I do a bit more every time I have a break between large pieces.
Pointillism is defined as a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of pure colour are applied in patterns to form an image.
I find this technique relaxing, just aim the pen and place the dot.
I decided to try something with colour using the technique so I bought some Pitt Artist pens in various shades of grey and green (only the lightfast colours) and did the small cat above. I added a little acrylic ink with a small brush to create the pink nose.

This print is printed on Epson Archival Matte paper using genuine Epson Archival inks. It is mounted/matted in white and the mounted/matted size is 10 x 12 inches.
In line with all my other feline limited edition prints of a similar size the normal selling price is £18.00.
For the next week it will be available for £10.00, I have included a paypal button in the sidebar or you can contact me if prefer.
The print will be sent direct by me and each print will be signed and numbered in pencil.
I picked this image as I loved drawing the huge blue eyes and the challenge of creating the colourful 'white' fur.
