Daily Sketch: Massive Cuddle Puddle, the Sketch

conte sketch of three cats cuddling

Massive Cuddle Puddle, the Sketch, conté and charcoal © B.E. Kazmarski

So here is the sketch version of the massive cuddle puddle that blocked my computer red and brown conté and vine and pencil charcoal. Giuseppe underneath acting as a pillow for Bean and Mewsette cuddling in, they thought they’d get dinner that much earlier if they blocked my view but I made them work for their dinner as artist models in both sketch and photograph. Mr. Sunshine does not complete the foursome because I peeled a layer of paper from my charcoal pencil and he got to play with it.
