Daily Sketch Reprise: About to Pounce

Giuseppe is all worked up about something! Not sure what it turned out to be—he was on the landing and whatever he was focusing on was just out of sight. He did this several times, crouching, then lifting his butt and leaping, running into the bathroom to hop into the tub and chase his tail (sounded like), then back out to the landing to start all over again. I have no idea the drama that was unfolding.

This is in green watercolor pencil. I enjoy the line quality of the pencils, and being able to soften up some lines to have shading in some areas gives Giuseppe’s figure shape.
