Daily Sketch: Morning Window

Jelly Bean settled down in the wash of sun on the wardrobe after breakfast, sun streaming through the casement and filling the lace curtain with light.

I have always enjoyed building up the shadows with cross-hatches, but looked forward to working out the pattern in the lace curtain.

The secret is often simplicity, like the window, just two heavier bars and three vertical lines.

Except that Bean looks as if he’s slipping off the edge because his elbow was lapped over it, but I ran out of space to show the rest of him was solidly on the furniture!
