Cleo, Cat Drawing in pastels

| No Comments

Date: Late 1999, early 2000.

For the Multimedia option of my undergraduate degree, I had to take 2 drawing courses and 3 drawing labs (these were not courses I would have chosen to take if I had a choice since drawing isn't my "thing").

This drawing of my favorite cat Cleo was made in the last drawing lab. For reference, I used a photograph of Cleo (above right) taken when she was a small kitten as a model. The shapes are a little off, but overall it works for me.

The colors are unusual because the drawing lab instructor gave us a list of colors to use (he wanted to break us of the desire to use realistic colors).

This drawing has been hanging next to the Woman drawing in our "gym" (which I hope to convert to a craft room) since June 2000. The drawing was probably made in late 1999 or early 2000.
