It is quite a while since I had the extended opportunity to sketch kitties from life, and I tried to make the most of it. These two are older, so they slept a lot, also very good for me. Most of the pictures probably look like balls of fur. If I got the fur right. The 1st ones are raggedy looking because I was finding my way with the new pens and getting to know Miss Rusty Ginger and Mr. Bubby the calico.
So here they are, the "all-levels" attempts"
These are water colors done at the kitchen table looking toward the backyard through the windows.
This is also with the Tombow Dual pens, using an aqua brush pen to blend and soften. I think I'm getting the hang of it somewhat.

It was a great week, and plenty of time to practice on drawing from life. The pictures started out a bit ragged, but I was getting more pleased with them by the end of the week. It was sunny all that week, but this week is rainy, so I can't go out for the plein air dates I have on my calendar. However, after these rains the country side will be wonderfully green for a bit, and I hope to be painting outside a LOT!
