how to draw a cat 2: sleeping ginger cat in coloured pencil
Another drawing of my daughters cat, sleeping this time with her beautiful bushy whiskers curling, fur glowing in the sunlight.
Again in the A4 moleskine folio sketchbook, done with a mix of Lyra and Polychromos pencils.
This one is much closer up, so the fluffy, overlapping texture of the fur shows much more with lots of drawing back in with the Jakar eraser for the pale over dark sections and the whiskers.
I deliberately gave the background a mauve/blue haze of colour to cool down all those warm glowing colours and offset them.

You can see the layers of colour in this detail and the lines drawn back in with the Jakar eraser, clean back to the cream moleskine paper.
