I stalked Tokala and Aiyani today with my new Rotring art pen, water and petit gris brush, and moleskine. I do enjoy the ease with which the pen bleeds, which caused me to be a little overzealous with the washes. Share this:PinterestEmailPrintFacebookLinkedInRedditTwitterTumblrLike this:Like Loading...

They look so natural! so charming!
Lovely sketches. I don’t think the washes are overzealous at all.
These are fantastic! You’ve captured them so well!! Love the lines mixed with the washes.
Each one is just great! They are so ‘cat’ with some sleeping and some with that look that only a cat can give.
For someone like me who is terrified of cats I sure enjoy your and Casey’s cat sketches. These really capture the mood of the fee-lions. I dont think you overdid the washes at all.!
Gosh…they just look so cuddly. Love the wash and the places where your paint pools up and darkens…..I’m sure there is probably a term for this, but I’m not sure what it is!
These are such wonderful sketches – and interesting pen washes! What is a petit gris brush?
Not overzealous in the least – beautiful! The first one is just perfect – all curled up in the sunshine…
These are beautiful. I especially love the last page. All of the washes are wonderful.
shirley: le petiti gris is a point wash quil, made form squirel hair(Arches). It holds lots of water and at the same time has a fine point so you can almost draw a line with it. and it is simply a beautiful brush, it gives me a great kick to hold it!
What a sweet grouping of wonderfully done sketches!! Adorable kittie too! So how do you like the pen? Seems to work well for you — I love the washes!
Wonderful! Wonderful! I really like the way the pen bleeds to make such wonderful washes and shadows!
What fun! These are such cheery cozy pictures and the washes are lovely.
these are phenomenal. stunning work. beautifully done.
It strikes me that these cats have an extremely good life – it’s just something about them. Lovely sketches, the washes work beautifully, Ronell. Does you pen have a very fine nib?
These are beautiful, Ronell! What perfect creatures cats are.
What wonderful sketches! I love the simpleness of them! Keep stalking!
I love your sketches…. you really captured the kitties perfectly!
Third one down is my favorite… soooo relaxed!
Wonderful ‘stalking’! LOL!
I like these so much, Ronell. Your wonderfully quirky linework and this exuberant tonal washes are perfect for the subject!
I love this series of cats. I find them the hardest animals to draw but you drew them perfectly! Wish you could draw my cat for me! 🙂
Beautiful work, and such contented kitties!
FanTabULOUS! Love these kitty sketches…..
