Daily Sketch: Bathing Each Other

I love these views from above. I had been about to sketch Mewsette having a really good bath in the middle of my work table with a few objects around her, then Bean came in and she jumped down to have a little bathing party with him. They regularly wash each other in this swirling way, starting with each others’ ears and working their way down each others’ backs. Such wonderful friends, though it always ends with a bit of a wrestling match.

Working in my studio most of the day, cats were around my feet for most of the time, and I have to be especially careful not to step on any tails. Kitties are probably glad I’m barefoot most of the time so I know my mistake immediately!

  • Lovely sketch, you make it look so easy. I could just imagine Mewsette and Bean in their little bathing party.
    I love your blog, it’s so unique and refreshing! Looking forward for more posts =)

    • Cathy, welcome! It takes lots of practice to make it look easy, but I’m pleased too–and they are such willing subjects! I could sketch them all day.
