I just finished this drawing of Pansy as she was falling asleep on my bed, she had one eye open and then her head dropped on her paws signaling the end of the drawing.
I'm really enjoying drawing with black and white charcoal on toned paper. I paint the paper with a pastel coating to make a sand-papery surface which is fun to work on. The middle tone really helps me produce something effective in less time than on a white or black surface as I only need to add highlights and low-lights.
I copied this quickly from the illustration in an advertisement inside the Drawing Magazine.
