Daily Sketch: Contrast Couple

Jelly Bean and Mimi hang out in the sun on the counter by the dining room window.

A nice contrasty sketch since the sun was bright, using a good soft charcoal pencil; not as dusty or smeary as the vine charcoal, but a nice dense black, just right for two black cats with deep shadows.

Mimi and Bean have been hanging out lately, as in the sketch a few days ago, Cats on the Edge. Mimi tends to spend a few days at a time with each of her kids.

Daily Sketch: Sunny Morning

I’ve always loved the long shadows that the cats and objects make sitting on the floor in the sun as it streams in through the morning, and the silhouettes of petite Mimi and bigger Mewsette against the varied shadows and highlights were so graceful.
