Well, it’s two cats doing what cats do, scratching and sleeping. Mr. Sunshine and Giuseppe are on the table by my easel—on my boxes of pastels, no less—supervising me, and making sure they are next in line should Kelly decide to give up my lap any time today. I was waiting for a nice cuddle scene, but none was forthcoming, though I enjoyed the time I spent studying them.
Just trying out some tonal ranges with the gray marker. I usually use color because I like color, but that was going to distract in this one. And those dried-out markers are really coming in handy!

What else was I sketching on this date?
Kitty Shape, 2012
There is something I love about kitty shapes, and this rounded bath shape is one of them. It’s so simple, and so clearly feline. But while I love the silhouette, I was tempted to fill it with a pattern of some sort…
…and for some reason this is one of the all-time most popular daily sketches in the whole set!
