Daily Sketch: Five for a Nap

I wish I’d had the chance to grab my watercolors; this did not turn out as I was envisioning in markers, partly for all the sketchiness and difficulty blending. But you still get the idea–a blob of shapes and shadow that become cats on the bed with delicate outlines, done in brush markers and gel pen.

Can you guess which outline is who?

You might guess Mimi, but it’s not fair when it’s a sketch! It’s Jelly Bean, Mimi, then behind is Giuseppe, in front is Mr. Sunshine and behind again is Mewsette.

    Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Bernadette.

    Mom asked me to share that she so admires your ability to create beauty in so many formats. Guess what? The image lengthwise above the cozy felines looks like a K9 stretched out to us! Thank you for sharing your talents, makes us smile on the outside and inside too!

      Jet, that’s too funny! I love to hear what others see in my sketches–sometimes when I haven’t looked at them for a while I see thints too. Perhaps the kids are telling me they’d like a big dog to cuddle with?
