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.

Painting “Sleepyhead,” step 5 (developing fur)

(Note: Did you miss Steps 1-4? Search for “Sleepyhead!”)

Step 5

Tackling the chin, shadows. I need to work on the shadow between the paws a bit more, but I am starting to see a nice contrast forming to the right of his eye. The floor reflection comes next. I am almost positive I will be tweaking the overall fur a bit more, too. 🙂

Let me know what you think of my painting by leaving a comment below. Thanks!
