Daily Sketch: Looking Out the Window

Jelly Bean peeks through the cafe curtains as I sit at my desk working after dark; what he can see out there is probably something I would never be able to see, but he is raptly attentive.

A lot of ink sketches lately; I’ve been exploring line and pattern, shading and even just outlines, leaving the color out intentionally. This one, however, I am tempted to add color to at some point, in part for the gentle tan and brown tones as well as the blue and deep red in the curtain.

Ironically, I like it better at about one-quarter this size—the lines and shadows work much better.
