View Full Version : Snowleopard in pastels

This snowleopard was inspired by a photo in the reference library and done in pastels on brown cloth. The size is 50x60cm. I've just recently started with pastels and need input.:rolleyes: Help!

I love how the brighter colors of the cat bring it out from the background.

Looks very finished to me. Where do you think help is needed? The cat is beautiful and well placed against the background. The cat's eye is the focal point and is also placed well on the canvas.

What kind of cloth did you use?

It's a fine canvas with rubberised coating. I forgot to ask what the specific name of the cloth is. I used this cloth to see the effect I'll have when working on a coloured background. It does cause problems with the white. Where do I go with this painting from here?
