Bonnie is now complete and ready to go off to her new home. I have used Derwent Drawing pencils for this on Canson pastel paper, using the reverse side of the paper to minimise texture. This time I used gouache for the white highlights of the chest fur rather than my usual acrylic - a bit of an experiment. I found that gouache gave a softer effect which suited this painting, but was not great for using pencil over. Swings and roundabouts - luckily I didn't need to go over with pencil very much on this occasion.
