30 in 30 Art Challenge Day 1

Persian Cat Eyes Drawing Prismacolor Colored Pencils
Persian Cat Eyes, Prismacolor Colored Pencil Drawing ACEO
Happy New Year! Several years ago, I challenged myself to do a horse a day drawing for a while. I did it for about a month or so. Since then, my drawing has once again become sporadic. It's still the one thing I battle with myself a lot. Once I sit down and start, I love it. It's the starting part that gets me stymied.

So, I'd been thinking about challenging myself again, when a friend posted a link on Facebook to 30 in 30 by Leslie Saeta. Seemed like a sign to get started:-) I don't know how many drawings I'll complete, as colored pencil isn't the fastest medium. I may do works in progress - I do plan on drawing daily.

This first piece is one that I had started some time ago. I thought it might be nice to finally finish it. This is my second-ever cat drawing, and I chose a Persian because they're dear to my heart. This is just ACEO-size, so 3.5" x 2.5", Prismacolor colored pencils. This is my creation. I used a lot of different photos to create the cat I wanted.

Anyway, hope you'll follow along! If you're doing something similar, I'd love to see.
