bleeding heart

I took a bench out to the garden and tried to sketch parts of my bleeding heart...and really when you sit and study something and sketch it, you *know* more about it, I basically knew what a bleeding heart looked like...I thought, until I sketched it. This is just a quick study, I plan to go back and capture more of it, and then do it in color.

update on cat sketch

Well I worked most of the morning on this. I don't know...I don't know if I still captured his personality. It is a cat tho. He is white and black, so I wasn't sure about colored pencils or I just continued on in pencil.

rough sketch

Had a visitor tonight, one of the neighborhood cats paid a visit, was sitting outside our door on top of the cat house, looking inside. He is a pretty young cat, mostly white with black on his face and black splotches on his body, he has a Holstein look about him. This is a rough sketch, I thought I would post my progress with him. Not sure if I want to just sketch him, colored pencil or water color pencils.
