Lamp practice

I did this sketch in preparation for a painting I’m going to do. (I wanted to practise drawing the lamp.) This is my reference photo.

I used a Tombow Mono 6B to do the sketch. Beautiful pencil—both to use, and how it looks. Pretty reasonably priced for the quality too.

Drawing’s really fun when you loosen up and let go. A bit like faith, I guess.

Monty

I sketched this from a photo of our previous cat, Monty, sleeping on his back. Sadly, he was hit by a car and died (a while ago). We got a new cat, Luna, near the end of last year, and she looks remarkably like Monty. I’ve tried to sketch her, but so far she hasn’t lay still long enough. I think she knows when I’m trying.
