My studio supervisors for this morning.
I sketched this very early this morning as I was working at my drafting table and the computer in my studio. Those windows face west and much of the light is absorbed into the spruce and maple trees with just a little reflected down from the sky. Two black cats look very soft and shadowed in light like that, and even highlights are softened. I chose conté in place if charcoal, my first choice, because I wanted to include the muted red and brown tones.
Mr. Sunshine and Giuseppe are tucked right up against each other; in fact Giuseppe rolled onto his side on top of Mr. Sunshine’s legs. Bean-a-roo was on my lap. I did not draw the computer keyboard they are both partly lying on.
