Looking back on some of these marker sketches I did last year is a little surprising—I had forgotten how colorful they were.
This is Mimi and Bean sitting on the narrow casement at the top of the stairs where it’s really sunny. Almost in exactly the same position, they sort of held it long enough to sketch, though obviously the tails were active.
They were silhouetted except for the light reflected on them from the pine wardrobe, and had a bit of light coming directly down on their heads and backs from the sky above. I itched to get the pastels for that pose, even charcoal with pastel washes but knew they’d never hold it long enough to even get a sketch started and markers were conveniently at hand. I did photograph it, though, so perhaps some day we’ll see this in another iteration.
