This painting is a study, for a dear friend, of her cat Saffy. A precious member of her family.
I found him to be a delightful character and a pleasure to paint, in fact I grew quite attached to him !
I am happy with the final result which was helped greatly by the provision of high resolution photographs, essential for detail and a good likeness.
It was created on Canson Mi Teintes pastel paper and a combination of artist quality soft pastels and pastel pencils using some 15 colours and shades.
