Michael Brugh's graphite drawing update number 5, of the cat Freda, using a General 9xxb pencil.

Freda’s coat is deepened by using a layer or two of a Kimberly 9xxb graphite pencil . I discovered the technique when I was looking for a way to create more contrast, and reduce the “shine” that regular graphite pencils make on paper. J. D. Hillberry suggested this pencil as a way to remedy that.

Freda's coat is starting to come together now. I start to show the dramatic lighting by beginning work on the blinds, plus her shadow. She is relieved to actually have a place to sit now!
