Day 8 – A Drawing a Day – BowHead

day 8 - Bowhead the cat, sketch for a future painting, by artist Michael Brugh

Day 8

“BowHead.”

Rough sketch for a future painting of our beloved outside cat, Bowhead. She is just a memory now, but she was a very smart and cool cat!

Here is another look at her:

When we first moved into the neighborhood, we soon discovered that “Bowhead” was a favorite of all the neighborhood kids. They had named her “Moon.” My wife, however, remarked that she looked as though she had a big gray bow on her head, so Bowhead she became.

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.
