Sunday Sketches - CAT spells CAT

It's time to go back to school for Madeline the Mouse....
Good morning, it's good to be back!
Please join me at Sunday Sketches with Sophia at The Blue Diary -
I am looking forward to catching up with my friends over there, I have missed you all!
This is a sketch that I drew, and colored with marker - to share with you today!
 I am currently painting it in watercolors for a favorite teacher!
I hope she likes it!
Have a great Sunday

I think your marker work is my favorite. That is still my favorite medium too. I love everything about the piece. The quiet line work in the back is in nice juxtapose to the fun chalkboard and Madeline's wonderful pose. Glad you are back.
