“Untidy Cat” 8″ x 10″ Colored and Graphite Pencil on paper

After a long day of playing and hunting mice, sometimes a tired cat will look a little untidy. But even with slightly ruffled fur and haphazard whiskers, felines have an innate grace. Lounging in the shadows, purring in contentment, this untidy cat has earned her nap.

This pencil portrait plays with light. using mostly white pencil on black paper, the cat’s form was created by looking at the individual hairs that reflect light. Subtle additions of brown helped create a sense of warmth. Traces of blue assisted the transition from stark white to pitch black.
