I have started a new drawing, but there really isn’t much to show yet, so I am reposting one of my favourite drawings. Originally the title for this drawing was ‘I Said I Wanted Chicken!’ The cat’s name is ‘Blink’ and I think I shall, at some stage, be redrawing, but with coloured pencils and not graphite, as used here.
This little ‘puddy’ cat is starting to come alive – working on the right ear now and slowly darkening it up. Do you know that years ago I didn’t like cats – it wasn’t until the restaurant where my husband worked had this little stray black cat turn up at 11 o’clock every night to be fed a prawn. We bought him home, named him Clive and he has now been part of our family for over 5 years. I’ve drawn several cats in graphite and am now really enjoying drawing ‘close up’ portraits of cats with my coloured pencils.
