Tonight I babysit my grandchildren. My son and his wife have gone to a concert, it is very late and Alyssa (age 4) is sound asleep, I tiptoe in to view her and do a quick sketch by the hall light. My grandson Will (age 1) is asleep in his crib but I dare not go in and risk waking him. After the sketch I retire back into the living room and the TV late show is on. I am reading The Creative License by the wonderful Danny Gregory but my eyes are losing focus. I am glad to have the opportunity to sketch my sleeping beauty, she does not hold still very long and I need lots of practice with human images. Done in moleskine journal with pencil then ink. the digital picture is not as defined as I would like.
