Day 2 and I've drawn kitty-cat in one of her characteristic dafty poses - this is "please scritch me under my chin".
The drawing is in charcoal and chalk again, using pencils, and less than 10 cm. The paper is Strathmore 500 charcoal paper. I was excited when this first became available in the UK, as I have read a lot it about it from american artists - but was terribly disappointed - it is very thin and creases at the drop of a hat. The colours are reasonable, although not generally as dark as I'd like them to be.
