Another From the Lost Sketchbook, Cookie Awakens

Cookie is never unhappy about being awakened, she’s just wondering what the heck I want, and if I’m just going to sit there staring at her and not even pet her, if she shouldn’t just go back to sleep. She did just that.

Cookie is a tortoiseshell calico, and her body mostly black but is speckled all over with orange. I didn’t want to work that much detail into this, but I did include the most distinguishing characteristic about Cookie—her half-and-half face. One side is black with orange freckles, and the other side is orange with tabby markings and black freckles. The split begins on her upper lip and runs all the way back to her shoulder blades in an almost completely straight line!

    I have the greatest models! Problem is, they are ALWAYS doing things worthy of sketches, but someone around here has to buy the cat food!

    Beautiful. The expression on her face is so sweet. I’m in awe how you can show so much emotion in a pencil drawing. Wow!

  3. Very sweet…my cats look at me all day like that, since one or another of them are waking up, here and there all over the house. Problem is they look so peaceful and sweet, it somehow makes me want to stop what I’m doing and take a nap with them. Nice sketch, B.
