On Guard

"On Guard" 12x9" pastel on LaCarte
This is a good character study of our cat Trix - she has this attitude of "are you talkin' to me?"
Love how this came together - layered the pastels so the cat's body would have depth and lots of color underneath, using the orange of the orange to bring warmth to her belly. I emphasized the shadow areas and exaggerated her lines, especially those around the head. I like how the tail is "floating" in the air as if she is twitching it with annoyance.

I love all of the expressive colors and marks on your cat. Wonderful. Great expression on your cat's face also.
