A pastel painting of a Rag doll Cat. It is made with soft pastels on "Velour" paper. A specialist paper with a unique texture. The best I can describe it is as a soft "flock" or even "Velvety" texture. It allows multiple layers to be applied in a softly blended style, whilst allowing a certain amount of detail and highlight. The work is sprayed with a light coat of Fixative.
