Cats laying in doorways, an age-old problem. What to do? Draw them!
There was originally another kitty with Mr. Sunshine but he left, and then the phone rang, so if it looks a little unfinished, it is, but I like the loose quality.
. . . . . . .
What else was I sketching on this date?
Two Blue Cats, 2012
Mr. Sunshine and Giuseppe spent some time lazing about on my work table, Giuseppe mostly sleeping, Mr. Sunshine bathing, by turns, himself and Giuseppe’s face.
At first Mr. Sunshine had his paw on Giuseppe’s neck, but decided to change his angle and put his paw over Giuseppe’s paw; you can see the initial sketch lines, which I left in place.
All the while Sunshine was at his task Giuseppe barely moved, having a really good nap in the loving paws of his brother.
I have my old pastel pencils in a cup on my drafting table upstairs in my studio, intended for finishing initial sketches and finishing touches on pastel works, but rarely for standalone sketches. Because Kelly was happily sleeping on my lap, I had to use what was handy, but I like the effect. I may use them more often.
