Daily Sketch: Mewsette in Blues and Greens

On days I spend in the studio I just have more toys handy. This sketch of Mewsette is done in oil pastel on canvas paper, real artist’s canvas, lightly gessoed, in a tablet. Because of the texture of the paper, which I enjoyed working on, Miss Mewsette had to be a little larger than the usual sketch, but she did not mind.

You can read about the difference between oil pastels and chalk pastels in Daily Sketch: Grape Jelly Bean, but suffice it to say I enjoy the immediacy of bright color and the addition of texture. Mewsette settled under the work lights on my table upstairs and the light is also reflecting back up from the surface, a cool-toned light which originally gave me the idea for the blues and greens unlike her mom’s sketch from yesterday where I wanted to catch the mahogany tones in Mimi’s fur.
