Here I’m trying to catch my impression of Jelly Bean on the table by Cat TV, where the leaves from the lilac flutter and the sun comes in at an angle, a little bit of leaf patterning and shadows. The scene itself is actually much darker than this but I wanted to capture the sense of light so I used the transparency of watercolor to its best ability. Bean is napping, and facing away from the window his face is in shadow while his back disappears in highlight.
