Daily Sketch: Kelly Silhouette

Kelly was playing in the sun again this morning with another catnip toy. At least she ate breakfast first! After I sketched her outline I decided I’d go a little farther and fill in her silhouette and long shadow.

I hadn’t realized I had sketched Kelly three days in a row. She’s the only one around here doing anything—aside from looking out the windows first thing in the morning, the five black cats are mostly sleeping all over the boxes I have stacked in here. I’m a little tired of drawing them sleeping, so they’ll just have to start playing around the house again.

      Chris, it wasn’t at all what I started thinking, it just grew into that, and I really like that style, outline with just a simple diagonal line fill. Have to study that!

      I visited your sites–incredible photos–but didn’t see any cats. I signed up for your blog so I’m sure I’ll meet them at some point.
