Pastel on sanded paper (Colourfix burgundy) 35cm x 50cm
(33 favourites on 4 October 2010)

Ralphy was a wonderful pet, but after I painted his ‘portrait’ he skidaddled! We never found out what happened to him, and can only hope he found a home he preferred to ours. (Maybe he didn’t like his portrait)!!!!

I am a pastel artist living in country Victoria, Australia. My subjects vary, ranging from landscapes, portraiture, animal studies, figurative, life drawing, still life and I find the challenge of painting water particularly enjoyable.

    This is so beautifully rendered. The texture of the fur, the lovely expression on Ralphy’s face and the rich colours make this a real winner.

  • Many thanks for your kind comments Bev. I don’t think Ralphy thought much of his painting! Soon after I finished it, he disappeared!!!! That was about 3 years ago. He was a beautiful cat. I’m hoping he took up residence with another family, and only left us because he was angry about his painting!!!!

    This is brilliant Lynda,
    I’ve done a few pet portraits in pastel and know the problems. I’ve yet to try sanded paper!
