01 Mar Tabby Cat Portrait – Asia

Head Study Portrait of Tabby Cat AsiaTabby cat Asia has been the subject on my drawing board this week. It has made a refreshing change to be drawing a cat rather than a canine portrait.

Tabby cat Asia and Leonberger Indo were drawn as a matching pair of pet portraits. Sadly Asia passed away shortly after her portrait was commissioned.

This pretty tabby is drawn on dark grey Pastelmat using a foundation of Faber Castell Albretch Durer pencils. I’ve used Faber Castell Polychromos and Caran D’Ache Luminance to build up the detail.

 

“Our portraits arrived today and we are both over the moon with them…you have captured Asia so well, she had ‘catitude’ !”
