Here’s Pontoufle, ready to give me a few pointers on my studio technique. One of his most important (according to him) observations: never underestimate the value of choosing a feline-related subject!

In my reference photo, the handles of the paintbrushes were black, but when I started defining the brushes, I really liked the red and magenta underpainting color there, so I kept it ... one of the perks of being the artist!
