I sketched this from a photo of our previous cat, Monty, sleeping on his back. Sadly, he was hit by a car and died (a while ago). We got a new cat, Luna, near the end of last year, and she looks remarkably like Monty. I’ve tried to sketch her, but so far she hasn’t lay still long enough. I think she knows when I’m trying.
This is a rope ball that our cat plays with. It was attached to a scratching structure, but, as you can see from the shreaded bit at the top, she managed to free it. 🙂
I haven’t really drawn or painted anything in about three or four weeks. That’s mainly because I’ve been working on a little side business (art-related!), and I tend to get absorbed in new projects at the expense of other things—a bit of a character fault. So, I was a bit nervous about getting back into it again, in case I’d lost all of my hard-won skills.
But I managed to pick up a pencil and do a could of quick sketches, so I feel a bit better now. The moral of the story? Keep going! Do something daily, even if it’s only small. That way, you won’t let the doubt set in.
Now to get back to that outdoor painting I started about a month ago…
More practice for my art class. I attempted making marks for a different set of emotions this time.
Some more negative-space practice. Again, I used my pencil to assess the angles and proportions. I’m pretty happy with these.
Note: The headphones were lying down on the table just in front of me.
