Daily Sketch: Kelly Has a Drink

What legs! Kelly really does have long legs, especially when she does her drinking dance, solidly planting all four paws, then prancing her hind paws and waving her tail while she drinks. There’s something so precious about Kelly drinking; I think it has to do with her timid nature, yet she totally enjoys her water so I enjoy her enjoyment.

This was done in steps as we spent time in the studio upstairs, similarly to one I did of Cookie last December. This bowl is on my work table because Kelly has always preferred to drink from a bowl on a surface above the floor. In the heat, she marches back and forth to it through the day, and always stands in the same spot in the same position. Kelly is a creature of habit, so I can anticipate her actions and keep my sketchbook handy, drawing the outline one time, adding her black markings another, then her orange.

    Bernadette, this sketch of Kelly is really beautiful–but then, I am partial to torties!

      Paulette, it’s an odd position, but so familiar to me after all these years with Kelly.
