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!
