FRIDAY ART CAT
Pandora the Bengal
This is Pandora, my Bengal. I was struck by her sitting in such a beautiful position with her back to the window. The sun streaming in behind her on the left lights her semi-transparent ears to a lovely salmon pink.
She is rendered here in Pastel Pencils on Murano Paper. The pastel pencils I use are those by Caran D’ache, as these are quite soft, highly pigmented and therefore extremely high quality.
Here’s a picture of her head which I completed first. In fact I almost like this better than the one of her whole body – there is something enticing about looking at an unfinished piece of work as one’s mind automatically tries to complete the whole thing…
I am an artist who makes work of animals and people.
Three cats live with me – Maine Coon Orlando, Bengal Pandora and black moggy Rio.
Commissions, and indeed any art enquiries – welcomed.
