Charles, the SophistiCAT

Here’s my third little cat drawing.  This is Charles.  Doesn’t he look sophisticated?  He’s a long-haired orange tabby and quite handsome.

As with the other cat drawings, I have added just a tiny touch of color in his eyes, this time blues.  I used Verithins because they’re so hard and don’t put much color down.

Every time I draw I love the medium more.  I think my favorite thing about it is how the value of the graphite depends on the pressure from your hand.  I think this really emphasizes the closeness between the artist and the emerging image  I know my hand was there!
