Pencil drawing of Lucy - sprawled in the sun

This is a pencil drawing of our cat, Lucy. She was sprawled in the sun on the floor one day. I did this to try and experiment with rendering her fur. I like how it turned out, though it is more of a rough finish than I usually do. It would be interesting to take this and render it in pen and ink, or finer pencil, or even colored pencil. She is a gray cat, so the graphite works well in terms of color for a sketch like this.

Hi Carol,

That is one happy-looking cat! The fur texture looks really good.

I also enjoyed your work in progress on the dog portrait (schnauzer?); I'm always interested in process.

Thanks! Yeah...she (like most cats, I guess) loves to just let it all hang out :)

Glad you enjoyed the dog portrait - I always like seeing process as well, so I was happy to be able to post one of my own.

Carol, this drawing of Lucy is gorgeous! Perfectly captures that stretchy, lazy-day feeling of a content kitty. You rock.
