Pastel portrait “Cat and a butterfly”

in #ntopaz11 months ago (edited)

Hello dear Steemians,

Today I wanted to present you’re my pastel work of a cat, that I thought to do already some time ago. What attract me in cats are their eyes, big and hypnotizing. I thought Pastel is the best medium for me so far to do such eyes.

You are right I recently discovered that using different colors laying them almost like with oil paints it is possible to create such effect. Also when you just mentioned the colors really match of the butterfly and a cat, have not noticed before. I am glad you like it :)

Oh what a cute kitten :D I hope you do not eat your friend butterfly :v

Both blue, so bright, so much tenderness. Oh, hello @stef1 \O,

Hi @elisonr13, it is a lot of curiosity in cats when they see such moving and colorful objects and of course the instinct of hunter is buried in them. Blue is my favorite color may be you noticed already and I am pleased to hear your nice words :)

you like blue! to me the purple, wait, not ... the violet, no.. magenta, orchid! :v

What a magical scene, your recent work looks wonderful... especially, the fur of the cat and those big and beautiful eyes that look amazing, it was worth it that you spent 2 days in this work. <3 <3 <3
