Daily Sketch: Two Blue Cats

Mr. Sunshine and Giuseppe spent some time lazing about on my work table, Giuseppe mostly sleeping, Mr. Sunshine bathing, by turns, himself and Giuseppe’s face.

At first Mr. Sunshine had his paw on Giuseppe’s neck, but decided to change his angle and put his paw over Giuseppe’s paw; you can see the initial sketch lines, which I left in place.

All the while Sunshine was at his task Giuseppe barely moved, having a really good nap in the loving paws of his brother.

I have my old pastel pencils in a cup on my drafting table upstairs in my studio, intended for finishing initial sketches and finishing touches on pastel works, but rarely for standalone sketches. Because Kelly was happily sleeping on my lap, I had to use what was handy, but I like the effect. I may use them more often.

      Layla, were you visiting the front page? I do have the slider there, usually with about a dozen images, though it’s not always cooperative. But there is indeed always kitty love.
