The rain held off, and we had a beautiful day to be outside at our favorite place – Lillie’s at the beach. When I said we’d be drawing people today, there were looks of skepticism, fright and denial. However, we started with a warm-up sketch of a person sitting across the table, looking carefully at the proportions of the face, and trying to keep the pen on the paper. Quite a tall order! But with much concentration, everyone was pleasantly surprised at the results.
Soon we had lots of people to draw! The Galaxie/Jax (moms and babies) group meets once a month, and here they came. I counted about 30 young mothers with maybe half again as many babies and toddlers. (They moved too fast to get an accurate count!) It was a delightful experience to watch for those of us with grown children and gave us plenty of subject matter – even though at times it got a little hairy…
Some of us take our drawings home to finish, so for our last post of this term, I’ll show a few of those:
Thank you all for following us here. Please look for us again when classes resume in January.
