Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly Scratching, 2012 and Round and Round, 2013

Kelly was sitting up and dozing, a perfect way to capture her slender posture and markings

Then she awoke, probably feeling me studying her, took a swipe at her nose, had a scratch and otherwise cleaned herself up trying to catch up with all the bathing that wasn’t getting done while she had dozed off.. This is the result.

It’s colored pencil, and if it’s difficult to tell, except for Kelly’s tail, just exactly what is happening among all Kelly’s spots, well, that’s just the way Kelly is.

What else was I sketching on this date?

Round and Round, 2013

Even a slender cat can look round when cuddling with brother. Giuseppe, who is long, and Jelly Bean who is short, fit very well together.
