No, not like vampires and all that, just at the twilight time of day, Mimi and Jelly Bean looking out the window into the blue of twilight.
I love cat silhouettes. Of course this family of black cats is natural for that, but I have also identified my cats by their silhouettes no matter their color. The other reason is that cats often have an introspective time where they are simply quiet and the silhouettes always remind me of that other part of the I also love. In addition to the two colors and sketchiness, I also picture this with fabric-like fills, as if they were appliqués on a quilt.
Of course, I just did this sketch since it is now finally fully dark. Mewsette absolutely tortured me while I finished the indigo on the figures and especially the dusk in the background, biting my pencil, biting my sketchbook, headbutting my arm, happily walking all over my lap and generally being disruptive. So much for neatly coloring. But Mewsette was so happy I couldn’t make her leave.
