More Work On Cat Miniature Art

As more snow falls on the Berkshire mountains of new England, I am adding layers of colored pencil to my miniature ACEO commission for my Twitter friend Dave Carpenter.

Steps preceding this one:

Added light washes of watercolor. Remember, this painting is the size of a baseball card (3.5 x 2.5").

Lots of pen and ink techniques.

More pen and ink...

This handsome cat is a rich blue gray color, very thick luxurious fur, and obviously the prince of the home. I've given him a throne of tapestry-paisley pillows and a soft background of warm yellows to contrast against his blue-gray fur (yet to be done).

In the image to your right I've included a penny to give you a sense of the paintings size. The mini piece is a surprise gift for one of Dave's friends.
