Soaking up the Morning Sun





Everyday Matters 300!  Something bright...this is my little girl cat lying in the bright morning sun.
This is how I find all my cats in the morning after the school run, stretched out soaking up the warmth.  They wake up when I arrive and after a long yawn, the morning wash and grooming starts.
My apologies to my little cat, I've drawn her a little bit fatter than she actually is!

Oh what a lovely drawing! She's a beauty! I love your sketch book and am fllowing along to see what else you add to it. (The bit about the masks is quite an eye opener...just imagin if we must always wear them...!) Please join me at my history blog (and if you look under "personal" you will see my newest feline love - Edward the tail-less Tabby!)

I'm incredibly impressed with your handling of the cat's fur - it is so light and airy and yet so realistic. GORGEOUS!!

I feel warmer looking at her. I agree with Shirley - she really is gorgeous!

Hi Cathy, What a clever interpretation! And your kitty does indeed look like it's soaking up some major sun! Nicely done!

This is such an excellent drawing! I love it from the colors to the lines. Beautifully done! You finished your book, and haven't missed a beat.

Christie said...

Perfect capture of cat repose. She doesn't look at all fat, to me. Or at least, she's much slimmer than mine!

Alex said...

INCREDIBLE =) You never fail to amaze Cathy

Cathy Holtom said...

I confess I have been reading previously and not had time to comment ~ so having arrived back, I wanted to say what a beautiful drawing. That sleepy look just conveys so much, it is a lovely piece of work :)

I love cats and this is so in character for them. I really love how you did this. The light is so well done. I'm gonna try and catch my boy cat the next time he suns himself. This is gorgeous.
