Here is a slightly "larger than life" image of my latest commission. This cat pastel painting was done on white Hahnemuhle velour paper. The original portrait shown below is too white so I decided to have the light source coming from the side to create a shadow on the face.
I really enjoyed creating this piece as it was the first time I used white velour paper and I was anxious to try it. I could have also used a light grey paper instead of the white.
