Daily Sketch: World Cat

I couldn’t sit in my studio today because a certain black cat had taken over my chair, so I took the hint and sketched him, his graceful curve and minimal details and the interesting light falling on him from the window and from my work lights. I used my favorite Pentel Hybrid Technica drawing pen for the lines of the sketch and standard watercolors from my limited traveling palette, blue, green, purple, orange and yellow.

I named it “World Cat” not because Giuseppe represents the world of cats or cats of the world (though he might like to think so), but because I set it aside for the finishing glance and it looked like an image of the earth from space, that lovely blue and green globe.

Or perhaps it worked out this way because I think the world of my cats.
