Sleeping Model

I went to visit my Dad tonight and he had just eaten his evening meal and I think he was ready to go to bed! Needless to say, he was a great model as he sat in his recliner and we watched old shows on TVLand. Well I'm not sure he saw any of the show. This is probably a 20 minute sketch.

A 20min sketch. Wow! Impressive. Handsome guy. He does look like he's ready to go to sleep. ;-)

Hi Gil,
I've visited your blog and oh my gosh--amazing. Thanks for your visits and comments!

Hi Paz,
Yes he was sound asleep and starting to slide so I had to hurry (ha).

I had to laugh when I saw this blog entry...I drew my husband this evening sleeping in front of the t.v! I like your drawing.

Paula,
Aren't they good models when they're asleep? Thanks so much! I really need to draw on a regular basis.

Remind me never to fall asleep when you are around with your pad and pencil, I dont think I look that attractive with my mouth wide open LOL! X

Hi Rhonda!
Now, one week working without coming here and you don’t even remember that
Blogtrotter still exists. But it’s there, even if India 2008 has come to an end… ;)).
Have a great weekend!

Rhonda Hartis Smith said...

Thanks Pat, my husband does too. You are such a wonderful cook that I would look that way after every meal!

Thank you Kostas, he has been ill and was pretty tired when I drew this.

Hi Ilhami,
Thanks for your kind comments about my sketch. I have more to post!

Brenda, thanks I'm glad I decided to do this.

Hi Trotter, I promise I'll visit this weekend--can't wait for the next adventure.
