This is an A4 pencil drawing I did from a photo submitted by Tamarin Lawson for the Catzrus Third Annual Art Exhibition 2018. Animals are a huge inspiration for my art, and animal welfare is very close to my heart. It’s always good to know that my art can benefit animals.
It took 22 hours to complete this lovely hairy cat. I always start with a 2B pencil and draw the whole animal, then once I am happy with the effect I work in deeper shadows with progressively darker pencils like 3B, 4B and even 6B. I used standard drawing paper from a pad for this one, which is not too toothy but doesn’t smudge as much as drawing cartridge.
I offered to sell this drawing on behalf of Catz R Us if it didn’t sell at their Art Exhibition. Price tag R800. The whole amount goes to Catz R Us.
Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing it? It will go with me to markets until it sells.
