On the drawing board: Freda (update 6)

Michael Brugh's graphite drawing of Freda the cat, update number 6.
The blinds are now finished, and the shadows are developed on the window frame at the right. The illustration board I am using is helping to create its own texture.

Sorry I neglected to give you some attention on the blog, Freda. 🙂
Although I like the texture that my illustration board is producing, I am interested in using another paper texture for my next graphite drawing. J. D. Hilberry recommends Arches 140-lb. hot press watercolor paper. He says to use the reverse side of the watermark.
