Daily Sketch Reprise: Hot Afternoon, 2013

Mr. Sunshine looks out the window, and looks hot; today was quite warm. He’d been bathing, and I was trying to capture his silhouette in one pass with these layered horizontal strokes, not quite but interesting nonetheless. I will be exploring this because it gives me exercise in seeing the try silhouette of my subject without breaking him down into his parts, tail, back, paws and so on, and also first outlining his silhouette. Fun!

And even though it’s mid-July, it’s actually quite pleasant!
