There was a discussion recently amongst some of my on-line friends about changing styles and moving on with one's art work and how difficult it can then be if you try to go back and produce something similar to the old stuff. So, being a glutton for punishment (and having sold out of original 'cat' paintings) I thought I'd try something similar to some I did a few years ago.
This is what I came up with. It began with a watercolour under-painting. Then the detail was worked up with pastel pencils, a little bit of coloured pencil and finally some gouache. It's about 15 x 11 inches on NOT watercolour paper.
