I just sketched this, as the light was fading. I’d been watching Mewsette and Bean napping in the box for hours like two big fluffy black muffs and I was about to call it a night and post something else when I turned to look at them from the landing, their two shapes indistinct with deepest shadows, warm midtones and blue highlights flowing in from the evening sky far above them outside the window, the green tabletop muted in the dusk.
It’s in soft pastel on pastello paper, and really a lot of it is done with my fingers, just scratching some pastel on the paper then pushing it around with my fingertips and the sides and heel of my hands, letting the parts of my hand shape the color. The only disappointing thing about this scan is that the paper is quite dark green. I will photograph tomorrow…
