Last Monday night we were delighted to paint Roxie. I've painted her many times in the past and she does such a good job. I do see Roxie's likeness in this study but there's something not quite right. . . maybe if I had three more hours I might figure it out! It did seem like I had lots and lots of time with the 3 hours when you compare to the 5,10,15. . .30 minute sketches last week. Oh well, practice, practice and practice more.
This is my Dad. I have decided to sketch him each time I visit him, if possible. I have a special sketch book just for him. He was a very good model tonight, I was able to capture him watching "funniest videos". This is about a 30 minute sketch, I wish now that I had just used charcoal but this is the first sketch of many. I think his nose is a little big and a few other errors but it does look like him (a little?).
