In my previous post I showed the step by step of Polo a beautiful white and tan Maine Coon. Well now he’s finished! In the last post we had reached his bib and I was working on the body fur.
I had chosen the sand coloured velour to help tie together the white with the little bit of tan that you see on his ears.
Even so, I felt that it needed just a little bit more depth to lift Polo out from the background. The colour representation here does not really do the original justice, but I used yellow ochre around the left edge (as you look at it) and the same with and undertone of warm grey on the other side.
I think he looks very regal in this portrait, let me know what you think…
