Illustration Friday - Instinct
Recently I started sketching at work during my all-too-brief lunch breaks and I've been wanting to post these daily sketches on my blog. I had determined that today would be the day I posted my first daily sketch, but of course I chose too complex a subject and didn't finish, so I had to figure something else out.
Our cat, like all cats, instinctively searches out warm places to take a nap. This evening was laundry time and the bag full of hot laundry fresh from the dryer suited her just fine. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity for today's sketch. (No, sorry, I'm not going to give in and say a "purrfect" opportunity. It's been done.)
She's usually a pretty good model but there were some noises outside that were distracting her and she kept moving her ears or picking her head up, but I managed to get this quick sketch done before she shifted positions completely.
So I'm delighted to be able to present both my Illustration Friday piece and introduce my first daily sketch all in one.
