Highly Prized

Highly Prized is the theme for this month's sketchbook challenge. I wasn't sure what I was going to do. Then I saw a Dover clipart of a cat sitting on a pile of books. I love books. As a kid I spent every Saturday at the library. I usually have a book with me in the car for all the wait times. My cat, Ink, is fond of sitting on papers or on my book when I'm trying to read so I copied the drawing. Drew Ink from the back and added my new toy, Nook. Now I can carry my library with me wherever I go.

Sketched in with pencil and then went over the line with a Pigma pen. Colored pencils, Gilded book edges painted with Schminke Gold Perl watercolor,

What's your highly prized?

  1. Lovely! I used to sketch my cat, but never could get the proportions right.

    Books and cats--that sums up my highly prized, too!
