Bell the Tinker

...............Tinker Bell, aka Laura P, may be our smallest model ever. At just under 4 inches, she beat the previous record held by a bowl of fruit. Lots of fun tonight...and educational as well. We learned that Tinker Bell's name is actually Bell and that her profession was a "tinker"...a maker or mender of metal pots and utensils. The original play was from 1904...the year my house was built. Great poses and appropriate music made for a good time. Drawing shown is approx 15 minutes, conte and pastel. Model was sitting on a stool which I normally leave out.

A Knight in Shining Armor

.................A first for the drawing class tonight..."Knight"(or Night?), a 2 yr old German Shepherd posed along with the model, Alex P. Knight is a well trained dog and held his poses very well! I'm calling him our first nude model even though some of the poses he was dressed like a horse. Great poses by Alex as always! This sketch was 12- 15 minutes.
