This is my Serval cat portrait, finished tonight. I guess it is mixed media, as it began as a pure ink portrait, with gesture brush strokes, I wish I had taken a photo at that point, I really liked it, and that was how I had planned to leave it, however yesterday night, I thought I should touch up a few bits with watercolour. Thinking a few brighter spots would enhance it, and of course the eyes needed watercolour. So last night I left it drying on the side, but alas on arriving home from work, I felt it needed some more alterations and additions, mmmm what to use this time, I looked at the pro marker pens, NO! But then peeping in the pen slot, were two very old Montana pens ( about five years old) would they still work? I washed the nibs under the tap, and hey presto, like new, so just to prove they worked, I went like made scribbling marks on the pretty kitty. So here he is my ‘Serval’ and a great review of longevity for the Montana marker pens, (black and white).
