Daily Sketch: Dinner for Three

three cats eating
“Dinner for Three”, charcoal pencil, 6.5″ x 9″

The boys enjoy their dinner on the floor in a casual array while their mother and sister dine on the cabinet. It is Giuseppe, Jelly Bean and Mr. Sunshine counter-clockwise from the bottom left.

This is my old favorite charcoal pencil. I keep one in the kitchen for handy sketching so I don’t have to drag the big bag of art toys in there with me. At dinnertime, space is at a premium. I usually sketch just the graceful outline in it but this time I wanted to do something a little different, a heavier line with a little bit of modeling. They are inky black against the light kitchen floor, but I don’t like to lose the details of their extremities by filling them in. Besides, I did that already, in brush marker in a sketch with a very similar title. Well, some things never change.
