Pastel portrait




Portrait information:

Subject: Erik&Birikino
Medium: Pastel pet portrait
Size: A3 (16 x 12 in)
Year Painted: 2017



Erik and Birikino’s portrait was ordered from a sister as a birthday present. Since Birikino was deceased and she only had one fairly bad reference photo of him, I had to work from what I had. Since cats are not as often portrayed as dogs, I truly enjoyed doing these beautiful cats.

Birikino, rest in peace.







See how the reference photos, work in progress and close up details looked like.
