Here are some sketches of Leonek, a lovely huge orange cat of my dear aunt. He is, as you can see, a very talented model so it was a pleasure to draw him. I wish I could do it more often.
The drawings were made this Christmas when I visited my family. I used my vintage fountain pen and my tiny Gamma series sketchbook by Stillman & Birn.
I wish you all a very special New Year!!!
Doing little illustrations and vignettes really helps me relax and take a deep breath between large and complicated paintings. I still have some sketchbooks by Stillman and Birn and I thought it would be fun to fill one of them with lots of small pictures. This time I chose Delta series with lovely ivory paper but I wasn’t sure if it would be easy to work with in the technique that I use. I have to admit I do love this paper! It has enough tooth but it is also very smooth (so great for painting thin lines) and not as harsh on my sable brushes as Arches! Yay!
