Spotted and marbled Bengal cats

The wonderful coats of these beautiful felines was a real challenge for my watercolour pencils. I use water soluble pencils as they are softer and lend themselves well to the fur texture, though I've never added water, I always use them dry.

Everything you've done here is extraordinary. I was very excited to read that you've had no formal training. I'm having such a hard time believing that your potraits aren't photographs--they are so real and wonderful!
