A Quarter Project

In honor of the Feline Conservation Federations recent convention I donated a pet portrait. The winner contacted me and I have started an 8x10 pastel of a beautiful Geoffroy's Cat named Spirit. Considering the whole body needs to be included in the portrait I have to work pretty small. Thank goodness for pastel pencils! To do a fun comparison here is the finished head next to a real quarter to show the size.
The head took me two and a half hours. I'm starting to wonder if mini heads take longer then my large 11x14 heads. What I really need to do is put a stop watch on while I'm working. Hopefully more to come tomorrow.
