A Step By Step Tutorial on Drawing Your Kitty!

Please share...

I recently saw a Facebook post by Debbie,  a work associate,  of her kitty “Pumpkin” and I asked if I could do a drawing of it. She gladly said “YES!” and I did a mixed media drawing that harkened back to a look reminiscent of a sketch from renaissance days. To create a surface to work on, I used alcohol ink stains by Tim Holtz (see video below) to create a rich antique leather-like surface and used Koh-I-Noor “Giochonda” Artists Pencils in charcoal, black, sepia, white and red chalk, powdered titanium white and Powder Blender (from brushandpencil.com). I also used a few traditional colored pencils from Caran d’Ache to add Ochre and Sepia colors. The video is self explanatory and lists materials used.

A Step-by-Step Tutorial:

Debbie’s kitty Pumpkin – 6.5″x9″ on Aquarelle Watercolor Paper – 140lb. Hot Pressed Watercolor Block

Fixative used was Blair Marker Fixative (after treating paper with alcohol ink) and Krylon Matte Workable Fixative (two very light coats at the end – if you use too much fixative, you may need to brighten the whites a bit if the fixative dulls it).

Enjoy and please leave me any questions or comments!
