The top of the stool is apparently the perfect circumference for Kelly as she relaxes there while enjoying the fan in this hot weather, one leg and a tail dangling off the edge. That is one relaxed Kelly.

What else was I sketching on this date?
Sanguine Nap, 2013
Guess who’s been spending time in my studio with me?
Mimi is tiny but full of purrsonality, and I find I can sketch her in many, many different styles and media. Here I have used just the side of the square conté crayon to capture her curves and outstretched arm. As I worked on another project, her strong little presence over there on my table distracted me, and I saw her shape in various media, and my eye settled on using the side of one of my drawing things, one of the many media that come in square sticks like pastels of various types, charcoal, graphite and conté crayon. Even though I found a set of hard pastels, Prismacolor Nupastels, in my cabinet of goods and decided I’d use them in place of conté sometime for the sake of the color, I settled on conté for this one, something about that sanguine color and Mimi.
