Charcoal, Bristol Vellum, 11″ x 14″, 2015
The lights and shadows, created by the charcoal, are meant to give the picture a soft and heartwarming feel. The short lines of the cats fur cat is supposed to look soft, hopefully inviting the viewer to feel safe. The eyes glitter with life and excitement thanks to the bright highlights shinning against dark orbs. The background was left intentionally white in order to make the black hair stand out.
