6″x10″ Prismacolor and Verithin colored pencils on Strathmore Bristol Vellum. My daughter-in-law Cecilia with her pet cat Lady Inquisitor Le Mew. Drawn from a photo to practice blending and contrast. Harder and more permanent Verithin pencils establish the basic drawing and dark color baseline. Softer and brighter Prismacolor pencils enhance color composition and blending. The scan image did not capture the paintings colors accurately, so color levels have been adjusted to better present the picture’s character.
