Is That My Dinner?

This was a quick drawing. I took the photograph it is based on last week sometime, and thought it was so cute I had to draw it. This is one of my two cats doing what she does best - waiting for dinner. I'm trying to find some interesting poses, and I thought this worked rather well. I also wanted to use it as a fur study.

The original is charcoal on 70lb drawing paper, 10"x14", and it went so smoothly I finished in only two hours (it's also a lot smaller and simpler than my other drawings). I used the 6B charcoal for the black and tan fur, the 2B for the nose and eye, and a smudged stump for the white areas.

Prints are available, but I'm keeping the original!
