Daily Sketch Reprise: Brotherly Time

Mr. Sunshine was having a nice complete bath and that was a good sketch on its own. Then Giuseppe, who has the be a part of everything, came over and initially crouched near Sunshine, waiting to be noticed, then they were licking each others’ faces so nicely—you can actually see Giuseppe’s partial outline as I quickly penciled him in.

Then Giuseppe sat up and looked at me, then he turned around and looked out the window on the other side of my desk. I waited for him to crouch back down, but I guess this was the pose he wanted.

At the same time, Sunshine methodically licked his chest and belly.

When I got the sketch done, Giuseppe turned around and settled his shoulder against Sunshine’s hip, and I liked that too, so I did a quick sketch in watercolor pencil, to be finished later.

Got a bunch of photos too. Not bad for just a few minutes of brotherly time.

Yesterday was tax time, today we had storms. Well, maybe I need my time broken up a bit!
