Why I chose such an awkward angle I’ll never know, perhaps I just wanted a challenge, but I was totally taken by the simplicity of color and shape watching Mewsette settle down on the chair that was pushed under the table. There are other colors in the scene of course, but I like the limited palette and the use of the gray marker. It was that very limit to gray shading, the red stripe on the edge of the table and the orange of the warm pine chair seat and the only black being Mewsette that told me to use my markers for this. Initially I had planned a watercolor.
I really do need to get a new gray marker because some of my scratchings are a little distracting; it kept running out of ink as I drew and I had to let it rest in between and I couldn’t blend out the lines.
