Daily Sketch: Repeats

After all this color, a black and white sketch. I had something else planned in addition to these simple lines but Sunshine and Giuseppe ended up moving even before I was completely done, and my plan, adding a pattern in ink outlines around them from the throw they laid on, then adding colors in watercolor, just didn’t work without them there. It’s one I’m going to get to though—I laid this throw on the rocker with this intention. In the meantime, I still like just expressive lines from the brush pen.

Below, they were napping last year on this date too!

What else was I sketching on this date?

Giuseppe and Mr. Sunshine settle on the cabinet in the kitchen, a croissant and a loaf. I wasn’t inside very much today, but they obliged me with a few minutes of settling into their naps, and as long as I was patient and could wait about ten minutes they’d finally hold still for a while. Mr. Sunshine always looks blissfully content when he’s napping, no matter where it is.
