I don’t really like doing doodles for Thing-A-Day, because I already do a doodle every day elsewhere, but I couldn’t think of anything else to do for today’s things, so here we go with a doodle.

Day 8: Progress at last!

Far from perfect, but it’s encouraging to know I’m starting to understand how to work this paint! I didn’t dare venture in a background and/or shadow for fear of ruining it. Maybe tomorrow :)

It was extremely snowy here today (Day 4), trapping me in my apartment all day. Which means that I did not really get any photos to share (there’s not much that would make an interesting photo in my apartment), but

Quick charcoal sketch of my cat from an old photo. She’d gotten inside a packing envelope, and the look on her face is pretty priceless. Distinctly a “Mommy, don’t ship me to Antartica, I promise I’ll stay off the table!”
