View Full Version : A kitten ... C&C welcome

I sketched this little one really quickly on the tail end of a workshop, when I didn't have time to start anything more ambitious. He took about 1/2 an hour, F/C Polychromos and Conte hard pastels with a few AS softies to finish on top, and Giaconda pencils for the whiskers. He's about 8 x 6 inches on black Mi Tientes "Tex." You can see a lot of the black paper showing through. Just a bit of fun! But C & C welcome any time ... There's always room for improvement!

Thanks for looking!

Jean, this is lovely. I am so impressed by your ability. I love the shadow area in his right eye and cheek. And that is a nice recession you got in the darker value of his back. So cute. Thanks for posting it.

He is adorable! He looks like he is in a playful mood and is just about to leap up and get into all sorts of mischief. ;-)

Thank you so much Leesa, Chris, Kate, Lori and pauseintheday. I won't change him ... But I just noticed he isn't signed! Have to do that, of course.
