Coloured Pencil Cat

Just finished this beautiful Tabby cat last week in coloured pencil. Mostly Prismacolor and some Polychromos on Arches watercolour paper. I was working from a packet design by Gayle Mason from the UK. I just love the way the eyes turned out!

Deb this is a lovely rendering! Well done. I am so amazed at the beautiful effects from the colored pencils. They are such a fantastic medium and you use them well.
The details are excellent!

How long would you say it took to get really comfy witht he technique? Or was there a learning curve at all? I am curious.

Thanks Neadeen!
High praise coming from you :-)
It's actually my first serious coloured pencil attempt. I've tried a couple of pictures from books I've bought before. It's true! Skills in one medium are transferrable to another :-)
