They piled up under the kitty keep-warm lights again, four of them gathering one by one, all tucked together as if they house was freezing and they needed to cuddle together for warmth. After trying to work around them for a while, silly me, I decided they’d be a nice subject for a sketch and instead of working spent my time trying to determine the best way to represent this large pile of blackness with a few highlights here and there.
So here we are, soft pastels on soft pastel paper, Mr. Sunshine, Mimi, Mewsette at the top and then Giuseppe.
What was I sketching a year ago today?

And other art to see…
The Pet Museum shared an excellent little sketch by Jean-Francois Millet entitled Le Chat or The Cat in the Window.
Charcoal and “chalk” (usually pastel), it is so lovely with diamond-pane windows and a house panther just gliding in.
