In the first drawing, Kissabelle lies on a sheet of draped fabric (we drew lots of draped fabric in my class!). As I look at it now, I see a few things I want to tweak, but it is close to being finished. The original photo that was my model appears below the drawing.
I have also been working on a second drawing of Kissabelle, based on the photo below this sketch, which is really only half finished. I just wanted to share them today since I wont be able to work on them while I am away. My big obstacle is impatience. I want them to be done fast, and it just does not work that way.
Still lots of work to do to get that arm and paw right. I think her nose is also a bit too long.
Kissabelle is facing some challenges right now ... suffering from pancreatitis. At 15, she is the last of our band of three geriatric cats, and very much loved, so I hope we can nurse her back to good health. It is going to require a diet change, which she is not very happy about. Peekaboo is stealing our hearts a little more each day too!
