Just needed a bit of color today. Mewsette and Giuseppe were curled in tight balls and sleeping tucked up close together, Mewsette’s chin on his hip and his paw over his face.


What was I sketching a year ago?

Two Green Cats

    Bernadette I tried to leave a comment on “I get clean …” but the page kept jumping about, both on ipad and mac!!? Loved the video 🙂 There is no mistaking the above image could only be of cats. The lines, the shape … ok not the colour lol. …. but ..? 😉 Could be jelly beans, could be Easter eggs 🙂

      Carolyn, it’s that darned slideshow! I can’t find one that doesn’t either jump up and down with the height of the photos, or doesn’t crop them to fit a prescribed space. Glad you liked it though! Above–it was going to be another charcoal sketch then I looked at recent sketches and they’ve all been pretty colorless–as has been the days! So I added color. Voila! Easter Cats!

        Well as you know, I love colour!! I’ve never tried a slide show. I guess there has to be compatible software that does it without added animation!!?

          Colour, yes! I told my Canadian friends I’m beginning to add that extra “u” in certain words. Normally I reach for the colors first and work in color with most of my sketches, and it’s funny that I just noticed I haven’t been. Today’s is pretty monochromatic…you’ll see it later. But no, the slideshows that work in blogs that don’t bounce around do it because they crop your image. Frustrating! Glad you could watch the video though! They guys are a hoot.

      Vicki, Steffi thought they looked like Easter eggs! I guess they are all seasonal symbols, and no doubt they weren’t too far in my subconscious!

    I love the way that you have reduced this to its bare minimum. Nothing but shape and color.
    Do you ever do collage?

      Meg, that’s a style I’ve been building up over the past year. Most often I do it in marker but I just had the “feel” for pastel today. I actually do a lot of different media aside from the ones you see in daily sketches–these are a daily exercise where I can do something quick and simple, often less than five minutes. It’s funny that I just told a friend the other day I wanted to get my hands on collage! I’d also like to print my block prints on patterned paper.

        I adore your block prints! I was looking at them today!
        I actually collect woodblock prints, from Hiroshige to contemporary. You may have inspired me to hang my art; I’ve been putting it off. . . .

          Meg, for some reason it’s my perfect antidote to drawing–I love designing and cutting them, and also that I have an image I can recreate over and over however I’d like. Get yours on the walls!
