Suncatcher by AmandaDrage Suncatcher by AmandaDrage
Pastel pencils on mountboard, approx 8x12". Leopard reference many thanks to *redbeard31 redbeard31.deviantart.com/art/…

I realised about ten to 15 percent of the way through this one that I had chosen a less than ideal combination of media and surface. Pastel needs something with a bit of tooth to cling to, and the pastel pencils seem to slide right across the surface of the board. I put off finishing it but decided to complete it today. Done, ticked off; move on!

Amanda I used to see your pieces a lot about three years ago, and tho I haven't been as thorough in recent years , looking at this piece alone shows how your animal painting has actually gone into another level. Well done.  Keep up this vein of form, it's really excellent ;)

Gorgeous, I love what you do with pastels. And big cats, who doesn't love them? The highlights on her coat are especially striking, beautiful work as always!

Aw, I know right? I have been meaning to do a LOT more art of them. I actually find them easier than domestic cats!! So maybe studying big kitties will help me with the little ones :XD: Thank you so much!
