Cat Portraits, Charlie




Just to prove I had been working on this cat portrait, I used a black background behind the drafting film for contrast tto show the chest area but this will not remain in place once the cat portrait is complete.



And here is Dobbin the Robin, waiting patiently by our truck at breaktime for any spare morsels of food.
Our road was horrendous this morning, we had to dig our drive out very early this morning just to get the truck up onto the track then we ran the gauntlet onto the main road, luckily things are starting to thaw now but looking ahead we are due 3 more snow storms next week but as the weather reports can't even predict the weather an hour in the future, I'm thinking this may not come to pass as it's becoming a bit patience sapping!
If you like my work please take the time to leave me a comment or become a follower. If you would like to win a pet portrait of your dog, cat, horse or any other pet please see my new competition.

Charlie is really looking good.It's looking so soft and cuddly. I have just for the first time used drafting film and love it.

Great job Karie-Ann. Looking forward to more updates.

Looking forward to seeing Charlie up and running! The way you work is a total mystery to me - what is drafting film?

Hi Liz, drafting film is a polyester paper and it is used mainly for design and technical drawings. So many people have contacted me about it now, I think I'll do a bit of investigation and add a post about it soon. Hi Dors, glad you like it, it really is superb to use once you get the hang of it, I've almost abandoned paper now!
