The original work is size 9x12 and I drew it with graphite pencils ranging from 2H to 8B. It is drawn on my favorite paper: Strathmore Bristol 300 series in a smooth finish.
I drew the butterfly from a picture I took in a butterfly house. Known as a Tree Nymph or Rice Paper butterfly, this species has beautiful black and white wings, and black and white striped body. It's lack of color seemed perfect for a graphite drawing!
I drew the cat from a photo of one of my pets from a few years ago. The roses I sketched and created from memory.
Thanks for looking . . . Hope you enjoy seeing it!
