Tabby Cat in pastel by Woodie

This was my first attempt at using pastel pencils for a work mate’s young daughter. She 12 years older now (Aug 2012)

My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

    Purr, purr, miaow purr.

    Of course you don’t understand it Neil; I was talking to the cat; not to you. Now … back to human-talk … what a lovely cat and what a fantastic pastel drawing, whether it be your first or fiftieth attempt.

    This is gorgeous Neil. I’m looking at pets today, having had to put one of my rabbits to sleep this morning. My eleven-year-old is not bothered, but I’m devastated!
