Maya the Jaguar is a beautiful black cat, when the sun hits her coat it exposes the many colours revealing her markings.  I wanted to dipict her as a black cat without using black to show the multitude of colours in her fur, the only time I used a black pencil on this artwork was for her pupils.


This artwork was created using Faber Castell Polychromos Artist Pencils on Clairefontaine Pastelmat

Measurements 32cm x 40cm,

References used were my own.  

Maya lives at The Big Cat Sanctuary in Kent, UK

Any Colour As Long As It's Black
