Daily Sketch: Boys on Purple

So much color on sunny days! Giuseppe and Jelly Bean cuddle on the old purple shawl I keep in a cozy corner of the bathroom for Kelly when she spends her time in there. The boys discovered it this morning and could barely fit on it since it’s folded several times to be nice and thick and to fit her.

With the extra sunlight the purple was vibrant, not so much here but eye-catching nonetheless, as well as Bean’s big citron eyes in his dark face. Poor Bean, I had to keep tapping my pencil on the bathroom door and calling his name to make him look up at me so I could get the details in his face! I can fill them in from memory, but it was an odd angle and I wanted to be sure it was right.

Totally realistic color today, no fanciful green and orange and blue cats! I just loved the way they looked on the purple shawl, such a simple composition, but so graceful and lovely.

    That could be a drawing of their older brothers, except that Angus and Donal are both the same size…. Giuseppe’s papa must have been a GIANT among cats!!

      Indeed he was, and I think Giuseppe has continued to muscle out even approaching five years old. He is huge but still only weighs 14 pounds, but when he sits next to Mimi (he is, we remember, a mama’s boy) it looks like someone fixed the photo.
