Last week I went to Napton Art Group to demonstrate for them in pastels. They are a lively group, and included several of my friends from other Societies.
I chose to draw a Jungle Cat, which I had seen in a Big Cats sanctuary in Hertfordshire. It's quite a small cat, very similar in size to our domestic one.
My reference for the rainforest background was found at the "Living Rainforest" centre in Berkshire.
I think the combination worked quite well, although I didn't have time to completely finish the drawing in the afternoon, so spent another couple of hours on it later.
