Daily Sketch: Sneaking

It’s Mr. Sunshine sneaking up on something, likely it’s one of his siblings. It all happened so fast.

My goal was just to capture the essential lines that make up the action, and to use the varied lines I can create with my brush market to create shape and shadow, but overall to keep it minimal. It’s also drawn largely, but not entirely, without looking at the paper. It’s not quite minimalism, but I might get back there. One of these days I’ll write about a few things I’d done in an even more minimalist style back when I was in college, and really liked the outcome.

What was I sketching a year ago today?
