Daily Sketch Reprise: Three Warm Cats on a Cool Ground, 2013

Where do these visual inspirations come from? Giuseppe, Mr. Sunshine and Mewsette were enjoying the view as I rode my exercise bicycle, having plenty of time to watch them and the light and visualize this composition. I wanted lots of mixed colors, but muted, indefinite edges, but the sketch in

Daily Sketch Reprise: Early Evening, 2014

I caught Mewsette having a meditative moment as the sun came around to the bedroom window, just catching her whiskers and filling the room with a warm glow. The light changes quickly and I knew I’d have about 10 minutes, and even then the light would be constantly moving. I

Daily Sketch Reprise: All Day Nap, 2013

At this angle, there wasn’t much to distinguish these two, only the stray ear or whiskers. Mewsette and Jelly Bean have been cuddling on the table by the window for days on end, having magnificent all-day naps. Today was very overcast so the light was dim and there wasn’t much

September Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: “Evening in the Cat Book Library”

Even though I sketched this in February, it is so autumnal and seasonal with all those muted earth tones along with bright leaf colors—and it has BOOKS! Just right for going back to school, or back to work after vacation, or just getting back to things after all the summer

Daily Sketch Reprise: The Twist, 2014

Mewsette twists this way and that in the fervor of her bath. She knows she is modeling. Something interesting I’ve noticed about my sketches—they have grown larger over time. I started out with tiny sketches, some only 2″ x 4″, on 8″ x 10″ paper, now I fill up all

Daily Sketch Reprise: Undecided, 2012

Someone was undecided in this sketch, and someone was undecided about it. Bean and Mimi happily bathe each others’ faces after dinner, but Mr. Sunshine just couldn’t decide whether to wash his face, sit down and wash you-know-where, try to be a part of the bathing party next to him

Daily Sketch Reprise: Love Cats, 2012

Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine were bathing each other on my chair (yet more chair stealing today), and I sketched around, holding my place with my pencils until I caught the moment when, as Mewsette washed her brother’s face, he slipped his paws around her shoulders. That’s sweet enough, but when

Daily Sketch Reprise: All Lined Up and Waiting for Dinner, 2013

Published on August 22, 2015 in daily sketch

They had to work for their dinner tonight! I went into the kitchen—some time before dinner—and this huge mass of black cats moving around on the cabinet just had to be expressed. It’s a difficult angle because there is little room on either side of the cabinet and they were

Daily Sketch Reprise: The Big Bath, 2013

Jelly Bean organizes himself for a really big bath on my unfolded shirt on my worktable, stretching himself into a bigger split than I’ve ever accomplished since I was about six years old. So much for that unwrinkled shirt. Love the toes all spread. Drawn in charcoal. Click here to

Daily Sketch Reprise: Emeraude, 2013

Yes, it’s Emeraude’s debut as a daily sketch! She loves to sit on the windowsill, but today it was something special, gentle dapples, lots of green, and that lovely curve of her head and her back and her tail. She has the same mahogany tones in her fur as Mimi
