I recently started up a new  artwork, a cat portrait in pastel. Her name is Mysan and is painted in detailed pastel on PastelMat paper in size 30x25cm. This is the second portrait this client has commissioned and she is located in Sweden.

Fist time I tried out the PanPastels and conté crayons as a base on this one. I really love how much simpler the process is with these.  You can view the first 2 stages below.
