 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Val, I have just seen your cat painting and it is FABULOUS so far.  I don't have any pan pastels and in fact, am looking for them to try but nobody seems to have them around my area ... so will try and get them in the States at month end as we are going to Florida for a week.

Thank you much Dennis.  :cloud9:   I think I made the chin too wide... :confused: Will have to stay as is for this one (future reference).
Cheers, Val

Thank you Danielle, you are a sweetie.  :-*

Am still trying to get the whiskers to show across the face, some success but not what I wanted. Will leave as is before I muck it up more. So just the hairs up on the ears and I'm done. Final posting coming shortly.
Cheers, Val

I'm done. Had some issues trying to get the whiskers and ear hairs to show over the pan pastel. Could have been the paper just wouldn't take anymore pastel(?). Anyway, finally sorted it, not to my satisfaction, but considering this one done. Whew!  :faint:   

Cheers, Val

Val,

Meow!!!  Nice job.  Love the depth in the eyes.

I did buy a package of soft pastels in stick form.  Now you guys are springing "pan" pastels at me - Yikes, the pastel world is confusing.

I know what you mean, Mea. There are so many mediums and options within the mediums. We certainly will never run out of fun stuff to explore.  :D
