Daily Sketch: Two Cats After van Gogh

Two Cats After van Gogh, oil pastel © B.E. Kazmarski

I am channeling Vincent van Gogh tonight, trying to work the same energy and form I see in his brush strokes. I can layer with oil pastel, but can’t apply or build up the thickness of medium that can be accomplished with paint; this sketch is also quite small, about 6″ x 5″, so I can’t work all the little strokes in as I’d like, but perhaps I’ll actually try this on canvas at some point, and something a little bigger.

It’s Giuseppe and Mr. Sunshine, just quietly hanging together on the landing, Giuseppe sitting upright, Sunshine loafing. I know they are both aware of me because several ears are turned my way, yet they have no intention of giving me the time of day or anything else by turning to look at me.
