Elmo the Cat in Watercolor Pencils

Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils are a wonderful sketch medium. This was done as a cat proportions demo for a friend who's using her reference for a pastel still life. She got the setup just as she wanted it and then her cat Elmo walked up to take his place in it and pose for the camera!

Irresistible Elmo! Of course she's doing the version with the cat in. Who wouldn't? A fleeting moment of feline intervention and he's a very handsome cat. Got his proportions and markings well, so hope this helps her. Eye color was a little bit hard to discern but looked more green than gold. I went with greenish golden.
