Quick Painted Sketches

Sometimes I take up pen and paints and make some quick sketches.

Usually this happens when outside - or indoors when Missy strikes a pose I find adorable.
I get the pose drawn in technical pen as quickly as I can, then I add some paint to remind me of the colour.

These are fast aide-memoires, later they may well be used as the basis of a full blown painting.

Sometimes though, a painted sketch looks so new and fresh by itself, I don't ever paint a larger version, because the spontaneity will be lost.
This sketch is one of those!
