Coloured pencil on Pastelmat
This was just a little experiment to see how the coloured pencils go on the Pastelmat. I have used pastels a few times on this surface and have to say it is my absolute favourite surface for pastels. But generally, I favour coloured pencils over pastels because of the lack of dust, and so wanted to try them out. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It was possible to get quite good detail, despite the fine texture of the surface, and was also possible to get lots of layers of pencils which is something new to me, after working on the drafting film so much. My brother took the reference photo of this gorgeous kitty on his iphone at a friend's house and as soon as I saw it, I fell in love, begging him to email me a copy. It looks to me like it is probably a Maine Coon - truly beautiful cats!!!
