The Neighbor's Cat


I did today's quick sketch form a cat image on Wikimedia while waiting for company to arrive. The pencil sketch took me ten minutes. I wish I had stopped there. Or had taken a picture of it before I did the wash. Oh well, it is what it is. It's a SKETCH. It doesn't have to be a masterpiece. This photo of a colorpoint cat on Wikimedia Commons says, it's possibly Siamese and was originally titled. "The Neighbor's Cat". Later, friends Nan and Jan, were busy with their cameras (trying to capture the hummingbirds), so I snuck inside and put the wash on. Took no more than ten minutes. So total time for this sketch was twenty minutes. I'm sure some of you could spare that amount of time out of your busy schedule to draw. Actually, it's the blogging about drawing that eats up time. Drawing is starting to become much easier and more second nature again, almost like eating or sleeping. I really am glad I decided to continue this Summer Sketching Series for yet another year.
