DRAWING CHALLENGE Day TWENTY EIGHT (28) Digby
I have this little framed picture of my cat Digby on the kitchen window sill. Sadly Digby only lived to the age of 9 months. He was a gorgeous Manx Stumpy cat, big, and in beautiful condition. He had fur like silk.
This is the first time I have done a drawing of a cat. I have sketched them before, but not a "proper" drawing. This one is far from perfect, I have aged Digby a lot. I really need to study all the drawing fur wips and demonstrations I can find.. It was fun to draw however. Oh and the frame is oval, for some reason, whether I take the photo from looking straight down on the floor, or on my easel, the frame looks round in the picture? The frame is made from some sort of cast metal, brass in colour, and the black insert is velvet.
A4 sketchbook, and graphite.
