Cat Repose Amongst Antiques

This version of Cat Repose was done a few months ago.  The Moleskine page was painted loosely with Burnt Sienna acrylic paint, then on another day Inktense Pencils finished the job.   The cat, however, was white Conte crayon, with a spray fixative.   Even Inktense pencils have a difficult time on an acrylic surface.   Pastels and Conte crayons work really pretty well on it though.


  1. This wash is very cool- it unifies an already interesting drawing. The cat looks sooo comfortable!

    1. Thanks, Marian. I learned a lot doing the Inktense on acrylic! It too way too much work, so maybe in the future I'll use all conte or pastel. I'm so excited about the workshop coming up!
