Last fall I posted a few "quick and dirty" sketches done from life for my Sketchbook Project sketchbook. The subject of those quickies was my wife's cat, Lilly.
Well, she's back today. Only this time you might actually be able to tell from the drawing that she's more than just a hairy half-a-lump on the sofa. That's because this one was done from one of my photographs.
Yes, I wised up and now have the old Cannon SLR locked and loaded for any good photo ops that present themselves.
I'm proud that I was even able to get such a clear reference image from this little play session, since she moves so fast and the light was less than good.
I have a feeling I'll have lots of cat reference before long.
