SOme days there's only time for drawing on the fly. Tonight I settled in to draw some restaurant patrons, and halfway into the couple at bottom left, our dinner arrived. So I wrapped it up with a few strokes, and then quick-quick sketched one of the waiters, who was not still for one second but kept moving back into the pose every few minutes. After dinner I managed to get the woman with her basket of chips.
At home Jesse was nearby, so I drew him while he grabbed a snack. I really looked at his tail and noticed that he has eight stripes, counting the dark tip. That explosion of yarn on the right side is Jesse's new bed. I found a piece of leather from a long-haired sheep that had sheep hair on one side. I thought J would love this bed. But he ignored it for a week. So I put it on the chair that I sit in to draw, and that's when he started sleeping in it. Now he's back to ignoring it, but it makes a nice chair cover for chilly days in the studio.
