Daily Sketch Reprise: On the Rag Rug

Yes, you might have to look twice to figure this out with the brilliant sun and deep shadow on Jelly Bean. I did when I looked down at him on the floor under my easel, and then between the colors and the contrasting highlights and shadows in his fur, plus his graceful position, all the lights came on for me.

I keep a cheap old rag rug there to catch the pastel dust and spills while I’m working. It tends to get a little bunched up but that’s no problem for a kitty. Here, the sun flashes out the color on a portion of it, the same spill of sun that highlight’s Bean’s mahogany and the cooler blue-white highlight on the top of his head.
