Daily Sketch: Cat on a Wooden Floor

“Cat on Wooden Floor”, pastel pencil on pastello paper, 7″ x 10″ © B.E. Kazmarski

Giuseppe enjoys a bit of sun on the upstairs landing where each individual board has a unique pattern of woodgrain and grooves. It made for an interesting contrast in shapes and Giuseppe held still long enough for me to draw most of him before he got up to go and have a real nap, as opposed to just a rest, in the bathroom. I thought he was nearly symmetrical when I first looked at him, but very quickly into the sketch it was clear he was not! This is pastel pencil on mid-range color Pastello paper.
