Another sketch in this series, in preparation for a potential painting of the same later this year. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ve noticed I’ve been painting a lot of birds the past couple of months, in preparation for two art exhibits so it was refreshing to take a day off from painting and do some drawing. I’ve had the reference photos of this bobcat for a while and it just seemed to keep falling out of the folder and into my hands or onto the table as I sorted through images. I can take a hint! I’m very pleased with the texture of the fur and think I captured the focused look in it’s eyes quite well. Now…let’s see how it translates into a painting in a few months!
