Looking out at the same view, this time with some movement in the shape of a cat. I made two very quick drawings; one in oil pastel, the other in willow charcoal. The willow charcoal went on the MoMA site.
I chose this one because it’s really a series of movements across the garden in front of the studio doors which now give me such a vista I can follow a whole trail of cats doing cat stuff. And, although the oil pastel has a kind of solidity to it, I like the simplicity of the line and the greater fluidity. Essence de cat, as it were.
