Cream Burmese




















Trying out my Strathmore Bristol paper. I found it OK until I got to the shadow and felt it to be too 'absorbent'. I think this drawing is also better in the flesh than in the scan, it seems to lose something in translation somehow. B and 2B pencil.

The sense of fur and they eyes of a living cat seem to be in the drawing itself -- not merely suggested. Very envious of this!

This is exceptionally good, Felicity. I agree with drb - something about it transports me from drawing to life.

This is wonderful. I don't thinks it's lost a thing. It feel so very real and life like to me.
Fantastic job.

your pencil skills just blow me away, this is terrific, what size is it?

Felicity said...

Thanks for those wonderful comments!

Dody, feel free to drop by as often as you want! ;)

Gabi, it's about 7inches tall and 3 1/2 inches wide (measuring the body not the frame!) I tend to work quite small so that's average for me.

AMAZING WORK!

Rah Kyndl said...

Exquisite. So fine. All of your work is a pleasure to contemplate.

The way you captured that dense fur is amAAAzing - I bow down to you, Fizz, The Queen of Cat Fur.

Felicity said...

Thanks Anita, Rah and Juj! Oh, I like that, "Queen of Cat Fur"!

Hi there, as a result of your nomination... I've dropped in!

As I have had the pleasure of owning two beautiful Burmese "Coco" - who sadly passed this year & "Chocky"... I was very much interested in having a look at your drawing.

It is just beautiful... and captures all the uniqueness of the breed!

Congratulations!
