Daily Sketch: Three for Dinner

(Sorry, this posted first with yesterday’s text! Someone walked across my keyboard…)

Three cats having dinner, seen from above, Jelly Bean at the top, Mewsette to the left and Mr. Sunshine to the right. I love how each has their habits of how they hold their ears and tails while they eat, and how they interact with their dish. But it’s always just a nice moment to watch them eat a meal, I can just feel the happiness, and hear the purr.

I actually wanted to continue last night’s theme of color with black outline, but there was no way I’d be able to finish it while they ate. Their bowls aren’t blue, they are actually clear tempered glass, so I thought I’d add a bit of color that way instead of using a typical gray to indicate something transparent with shadow and highlight. I’ve always liked black and turquoise!

    Lovely moment captured. My gang eats so quickly that it does not translate with quite the same peaceful imagery…. You would need to add a flurry of scribbles to imply frentic energy!!

      Deb, even though they eat nearly everything in five minutes or less after torturing me for a few hours and dancing around in the kitchen, they are pretty calm about it when the food actually arrives. This was the habit of my cats for years and I wonder if they haven’t had it passed down to them from many years ago. Sketch takes a minute or two to block out, so even though they are moving I can catch the outlines for one like this.

      I’m glad you enjoy them! I am energized by them, I truly enjoy flipping through my sketchbooks and seeing them on the walls here.
