Wildlife paintings, portraits & pet portraits by New Zealand Artist Karen Neal


Pastel, 320x320mm

A pastel portrait of a much-loved beautiful Burmilla, Isabella (Izzy). Sadly Izzy passed away in 2017.

I initially had drawn the portrait at 32x42cm but it just looked better cropped square so as the focus was on Izzy’s lovely face and eyes. She was such a lovely girl to draw :) The portrait was commissioned by Maree of Auckland, as a forever tribute to their special wee girl.

Still on the easel, prior to framing. Pastel can be a messy business!

Here is Izzy's sister Summer, who is a mix Berman Ragdoll Persian, modelling beside the framed painting.
