My Baby Kitty Mooch

As I was listening to Philosophy Talk on the web I got out some colored pencils and drew my baby kitty Mooch. Ok, he is not a kitten but he is my baby, well at least one of my babies.

I had quite a time getting enough black pencil on the dark blue background paper. Originally I wanted to draw him on black paper and use the highlights to make him stand out, but I did not have any black drawing paper. I am not sure if it would have turned out. It was only going to be an experiment. It has been a few years since my last colored pencil drawing so I was a bit rusty. I really do like working with colored pencils. Many of my pencils have disappeared which means I need to go to the art store and get some new pencils. Hey, any excuse to go to the art store is a good one.

I think that I will have to draw my other baby kitty, the dog, the bird (in pencil this time), the two rats, the grandbabies. . . . . . . . . . .

looks like you love Mooch very much, so this is a good thing for you to draw and get lost in the process.

This is a stunning drawing. I really like the black on dark blue too, I never would have thought to do that!

Oh Mooch, what a beauty. I love animal portraits and you've done a marvelous job here capturing his character.
