Daily Sketch: Beanbath

When they are in mid-bath I have to get it down fast, especially Bean headed for a toe cleaning. Quick sketchy strokes, followed by a little touch-up of details from a blurry reference photo. I think the sketchy lines capture the action. It could be any one of the five, but just to make sure you know who it is, I’ve added Bean’s white belly triangle.

He’s not fat at all; he only weighs a little over 10 pounds. But he has this roly-poly bearing, especially when he sits for a bath. He’s just darned cute.
