Kitty in a forest of poinsettia #art

I’ve started working on xmas pics for sale and xmas cards. I’m super happy with this one so far. It’s gonna take forever to color but every moment I’ve been coloring has been happy and not the least bit frustrated. 

I’m working with prismacolor pencils. So far 925, 195, 924, 1067, 1063, 1065, 1059. @buried_in_books bought me a new pencil sharpener and I love it. It’s an Utrecht automatic precision sharpener. Don’t let that automatic word fool you, you still have to do the pencil turning yourself. 


Days been a bit scattered (dr’s and pharmacy mix ups sigh 😉 ) and the piece to post today is behind so here is some sketches. 

I like to use a soft lead in a mechanical pencil cause no sharpening is great and soft lead erases easier. These are not finished to be inked pieces and still need work.
