Mimi pauses in her bath.
I love views of my cats from above. Perhaps that’s because most often that’s the angle from which I see them. I was actually waiting for Mimi to pause so that I could get a start on a sketch. I saw so many highlights and reflected tones on her and as soon as she decided to just sit still I began to sketch. Promptly she noticed me got up and left the room, came back in and got up on my lap so I finished it from memory, missing much of the reflected highlights. As soon as I finished, she got back down on the floor. She was pretty clear in her message! I sketched her anyway.
I liked this sketch so much you’ll notice it’s the cover image for Feline Style Sampler, below!
