Creating new Pastel Grounds for Clemmy Kitty

"Clementine" ( see all proofs)
© rebecca collins /

About The Art: Clemmy's original photograph was pretty wonderful. Sometimes solid white or solid black pets can get totally blown out by too much light, in Clemmy's case we have lots of detail and value in her coat. Her ears were slightly cropped out in the original, but that was easy to fix. My client has requested pastel grounds in her proofing set. Since I do not usually do a lot of soft pastel options I figured this would be a great time to experiment and add a few new options to my arsenal.  The ground on the first art image above is a remake of an old ground while the other 2 are brand new.  I love this pretty Persian kitty and I am pleased with all the results.

Thanks Eve. I think the composition and placement of the cat was inspired by Christine's last kitty mosaic.

Oh my! I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite! I suspect the top one is the most pastel-y though? I love 'em all. And this is one gorgeous kitty indeed!

Thanks for the great comments everyone. Christine, I agree, love it when people ask for something off my normal menu.
