Polly Paused - version 2

Polly Paused - version 2
14" x 11 coloured pencil on black Stonehenge paper

I've continued to work on the picture of Polly, mainly to see how much saturation I can get on the black Stonhenge before I start to lose the surface texture.

I like this version better - but some lemon got in there and needs to come out in the final version. I don't think I'm going to get the impact I want on this paper in relation to saturation and subtlety and need to try a different surface - maybe just a different colour of Stonehenge? Maybe on some Art Spectrum colourfix or Amperdsand pastelbord? We shall see.........

Thanks for all the comments on yesterday's post - especially all the ones saying that this will be a pose recognised by cat lovers. That's my target audience for this one as the SOFA exhibition has a very large mailing list and lots of people who visit (and buy) who adore cats!

All I need to do now is work out what support to do this on and what the next three are going to be about!
