Red Maine Coon - Finished

'A Cat's Tale'
Mixed Media on hot press watercolour paper.
I was planning on adding a few more steps of progress along the way, but unfortunately my deadline didn't leave me time to stop and scan the stages.

beautiful result - I must have another go at using coloured pencils, never thought of putting a wash of watercolour as a base

Colette Theriault said...

Wow, just gorgeous. Love the soft fur and intense color.

Gayle Mason said...

Thank you Sharon and Colette.
The watercolour works really well as a base for coloured pencil adding depth without needing to work quite so many layers.

As always, your work is so very impressive. Lovely handing of the materials, but most importantly, the personality is so much a part of this piece as to be the sum of it when viewing. Only after that experience do you start to see the craftsmanship beneath. Great job, Gayle.
