Rag Doll “Splodge”

This is Chesterfield Whillowby also known as “Splodge” because his registered name is simply too long and impractical.   He is a beautiful Rag Doll/Himalayan cross and I was inspired to paint him because of his beautiful caffè latte colouring and intense blue eyes.

He’s a timid cat but became quite brave long enough for me to capture an image I could paint in my current favourite medium – pastel.

The addition of an object of his focal interest keeps the picture balanced and the eye moving around the painting.   This was pure pleasure to paint.
