Daily Sketch Reprise: Eyelet Ruffles

Must be something ab0ut that Sunday laundry that goes so well with cats…

Jelly Bean settled himself on the folded pillow shams and I can’t resist sketching ruffles and patterns. The empty spot on the left had contained his brother, Mr. Sunshine, but he left before I had a chance to sketch him, so it’s just the laundry basket behind him to the right. I added some watercolor washes just for fun.

What other sketches did I share on this date?

Mimi sits on the top step of the deck looking out over the yard striped with sun. We’re still not sure what else she might decide to do out there, but for now she stays on the deck. Interesting, considering my yard was her territory when she was an outdoor cat. But then, sometimes it’s just nice to enjoy a lovely morning, especially in December.

For the first time I’ve done a daily sketch outside. I may get used to this. Just a quick sketch in charcoal.
