Daily Sketch Reprise: Top of the World, 2012

Mimi again enjoys the warmth of the sun on her one side, this time on top of the wardobe at the top of the stairs, her new favorite spot. This is another one of those complicated sketches that I did quickly, then filled in later, though Mimi spent quite a

Daily Sketch Reprise: Swirling Bath, 2014

Well, this wasn’t at all what I’d set out to do, but then I’d set out with kind of a loose idea to begin with, “sketch Mr. Sunshine on my desk”. I started out with the toned paper and charcoal seeing Sunshine with his glossy black fur, but suddenly discarded

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly With Grapes and Apple, 2012

When the sun moves around to filter into this window, Kelly hops over to enjoy it and have a nice bath on the cabinet. In a rare moment of repose, she sits still and lets the sun warm her back, the light reflecting back from the pine wood cabinet warming

Daily Sketch Reprise: The Sunny Upstairs Window, 2012

If you’ve been following my sketches for any length of time, you’ve probably seen gradual changes that begin with a particular sketch—adding new media, using a new color palette, finding a new style, even using a new and different paper. In my everyday life as an artist I took the

Daily Sketch Reprise: Mewsette’s Tail, 2014

Daily Sketch Reprise: Watching the Storm, 2013

We had a surprise storm late today, fast and noisy and dark, with lots of rain and wind, and then we had a neighbor’s tree in our yard. More storms came later, not as bad as the first, but bad enough to lose our electricity again. What else for me

Daily Sketch Reprise: Three Colored Cats, 2012

Time for a sketch in this style again, but a little different from the others, listed below. The boys were sleeping in wonderful positions all smashed together and comfortable, just ready for a different sort of treatment. This is Mr. Sunshine in blue for some reason, and Jelly Bean in

Daily Sketch Reprise: Giuseppe Resting, 2014

So Giuseppe rests all the time, why draw him now? Jusdt because he looked so velvety black there on my desk, completely covering up something I needed to work on. You can see a few extra lines I’d erased at the bottom; he had started out with one paw curled

Daily Sketch Reprise: Arrangement of Three Cats, in Three Colorizations, 2014

Mewsette, Mr. Sunshine and Giuseppe were arranged on my desk and looking out the window. I liked their arrangement and decided just to do a few quick outlines intending to add some color once I finished the initial sketch. I decided I’d like to see just a general fill of

Daily Sketch Reprise: Stained Glass Cats, 2014

Here’s an idea that’s been occurring to me lately as I watch the cats in the sun by the dining room window. I love the way the glass in a stained glass panel is shaded light toward the center of its shape, darker outside by the shadow from the lead
