Warm up sketch

Before the Mirror
Robert Barrett Browning

I have life class tonight after it being cancelled the last two weeks, so I'm anxious to get back into again. So lunchtime I was loosening up a little with a sketch of this painting. I love the pose, but don't know if I can convince the model to hold it for 30 minutes to do it justice.

And now for something just plain silly.

i wish i had half your sketching skills, Jeanette. i have no doubt you'll get right back into it when class resumes.

thanks for the screen cleaner! it felt like going thru the auto wash.:D

Great rendition of a classic. Makes you wonder how long the models had to stand for the masters to paint back in the day!!

Well, my screen is clean of the dust, but now I have to get the dog slobber off! : )

I don't know Billie, some days the sketching just doesn't flow, other days it does.

The screen cleaner is so cute. I just wanted to pick that puppy up and squeeze it.

Thanks Tom. Yes! The models I'm sure were well worked for the original paintings.

Heheh, sorry about the dog slobber...
