Daily Sketch Reprise: Out the Front Door, 2014

This art was high up in the running for this month’s desktop calendar. I’ll have to come up with some sort of a runner-up thing…

Giuseppe, Mimi and Mewsette spend some time watching out the front door. There are birds fluttering and chipmunks racing back and forth across the porch, Fatso the squirrel runs up and down the tree now and then, butterflies and bees fly around, the leaves flutter in the breeze, now and then a car goes by, or people walk up or down the hill, sometimes with a dog. They watch it all with quiet interest. Until the chipmunk goes by.

This took me nearly all day, but only because I wanted to wait for the big splats of watercolor to dry. I’m glad I took a reference photo. The three were long gone by the time I got around to painting them in.

Here’s a version of the painting with the edges cropped off.

What else was I sketching on this date?

Boys were hanging out in the middle of the kitchen during the afternoon waiting for dinner, trying their best to look pitiful and make me feel guilty. I did a sketch instead.

It’s Giuseppe, Jelly Bean and Mr. Sunshine.
