Realistic pussycat graphite pencil drawing

Furia sunbathing – 16-05-16 (sold)

In retrospective this is an ode to my deceased cat who died in November 2016. This is her, reclining in the sun, a couple of months earlier, when she was still going strong. Some said then that it looked dead and that it was a horrible drawing I do not agree. This pose was typical for her and for all cats adoring the sun.
