I set up my materials and sat down to do my “One Drawing a Day” exercise, but I had barely begun when Otto decided it was “Love the Cat” day. Rubbing my legs, jumping on the work table, being extremely affectionate and charming. After giving him a lot of attention I thought I’d give him a saucer of cream so that I might work for a while. The second I rose from the chair, he immediately took my place in the seat and gave me “The Face”. It was my chair in the window he was after, and he was not above using all of his charms to achieve his goal.
So I took a little “Drawing Detour” and used him for my model. He sat long enough for me to make these two drawings, and then he rose and I gave him the saucer of Cat Nirvana, and returned to my original goal. The final drawing in this post is the “Official” DAD exercise, but I’m pretty happy to have the other two as well!
