MoMA drawing-a-day challenge, Day 2

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.

Oil pastel stick. The faint marks underneath are leakage from yesterday’s garden drawing.
Willow charcoal stick.

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.
